Social Media Residency Returns to Rochester on May 12

We're pleased to announce that our one-day Social Media Residency will meet May 12th at the Doubletree Hotel, near the Mayo Clinic campus in downtown Rochester, Minn.

The Social Media Residency had been a 1.5-day course, with participants completing a few basic online modules in advance to create a common frame of reference. Now we're moving more of the program online, substantially enhancing the prerequisites, so we can trim the in-person portion to one day.

This will let us allot less of our face-to-face time to presentations that can be delivered more efficiently online, and will enable richer discussion that is focused on the participants' questions and needs.

As the new Social Media Residency Agenda indicates, on the eve of the one-day program we'll have an optional session to provide extra hands-on help for those who feel they need pointers on creating or configuring their social media accounts.

The one-day program will reduce lodging costs for those traveling to participate, and also will enable us to offer the program more frequently and in additional locations. Discounted lodging reservations can be made at by clicking here.

And because all Network members have access to the complete online curriculum (including the enhanced prerequisites), more of our training is now accessible even for those who can't attend an in-person course

The residency provides training for Mayo Clinic employees, but is open to others on a first-come, first-served basis. Learn more about the residency at our Social Media Residency page. Tuition is discounted for members of Mayo’s Social Media Health Network (SMHN).
