Should Physicians Only Post Professional Content on Their Private Social Media Accounts?
A recently retracted study published in The Journal of Vascular Surgery that explored the prevalence of "inappropriate" social media content posted by young surgeons has been criticized for being sexist. The authors specifically call out female physicians for posting photos in bikinis and provocative Halloween costumes. While the paper stresses that young physicians should refrain from posting such images, others in the medical community feel that the private lives of healthcare providers should not be scrutinized.
A recently retracted study called out young female physicians for posting provocative photos online, but many feel it is unfair to scrutinize their private lives. Are you for or against physicians only posting professional content on social media?
