#MedEdChat Transcripts

In October 2017, the Alliance for Clinical Education became the moderator for the #MedEdChat on X (formerly Twitter). The chat occurs on the first Thursday night at 9:00 PM Eastern/NYC. We may periodically have a special topic pop up requiring a separate time and will notify all about that. Join the regularly scheduled chats using your X account and search for #MedEdChat!

Some helpful pointers for participating in a social media chat are available on this infographic.

If you have an idea for a topic you would like discussed, please contact our executive director at alliance4clined@gmail.com.
