Michigan surgeons at Henry Ford Hospital are using Twitter to teach new techniques. Teaching via social-networking tools is becoming more common as a tech-savvy generation fills the ranks of future physicians. Doctors are able to do minute by minute updates, sharing every nuance of a procedure’s complications and successes. Twittering makes teaching surgery a truly dynamic process.
