Others offer “boot camp,” but we use a medical metaphor to more accurately convey the nature of our social media training intensive.
Just as medical residency is more advanced than medical school, Social Media Residency goes way beyond basics while remaining accessible for motivated beginners.
Our priority: creating a dynamic learning experience.
We've designed curriculum that includes prerequisites and a self-study prep to help novices arrive with some knowledge. You're encouraged dig even deeper with the support of an online and onsite cohort.
Some training takes place in “safe spaces” (i.e. private blog for residents). We also require participating in hands-on activities to develop competence and confidence. Experienced mentors (a.k.a., Chief Residents) provide guidance and encouragement. (Note: We maintain a resident/faculty ratio of no greater than 8:1.)
Our program is organized around these key learning objectives:
Social Media Residents who complete coursework, submit strategic plans for review and have those approved, receive the designation of Bronze Fellow in the Social Media Health Network.
$795 includes access to pre-work; a copy of our book, Bringing the Social Media #Revolution to Health Care; instruction and real-time mentoring; post-Residency review of strategic plans; one-year membership in the Social Media Health Network. Meals and snacks included.
Already a Network member? You have access to all online learning modules, thus allowing you to work through curriculum at no additional charge.
We provide a one-day in-person Social Media Residency on each of our Mayo Clinic campuses (Arizona, Florida and Minnesota) at least twice per year. We also offer the Residency in other settings in collaboration with Social Media Health Network members. If you're interested in having your organization host a session, we provide details in this downloadable document.
Social Media Residency will be held in early 2015 in the following locations:
