New Issue of Professionalism Newsletter Focuses on Online Behavior

A new issue of AACOM’s Best Practices in Teaching, Learning and Assessment of Professionalism, focuses on “Online Professionalism, Social Media, and Physicians.” In the newsletter, Editor John Gimpel, DO, MEd, President and Chief Executive Officer, National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners, writes that “while the Internet has created the ability to share information and communicate with others widely and quickly, this has created potential risks.”

The e-newsletter was designed for sharing successful methods and ideas for medical educators on how to facilitate learning and design assessment strategies that promote professionalism. To contribute to future issues, contact Dr. Gimpel at
