Physicians have increasingly used social media to begin conversations on a range of topics and share their research.
One of the most recent social media apps they use is Clubhouse, an audio-only platform.
Austin Chiang,MD, MPH, chief medical social media officer at Jefferson Health, explained there are rooms where a certain number of people are on stage speaking and the others are considered the audience. Those is the audience can only speak when they raise their hands and are invited on stage.
“It’s great,” Chiang, told Healio Gastroenterology. “It fills a certain need for group communication and it’s similar to Zoom in that you can engage with multiple people at a time, but the platform doesn’t cut out if people are talking over each other.”
