Opportunities and Resources for Mayo Clinic Employees
The Mayo Clinic Center Social Media Network (MCSMN) exists to help Mayo Clinic professional and allied health staff better understand the power and potential of social media tools. We provide training and resources to help you use them safely and effectively with confidence.
MCSMN is resource and networking center not only for Mayo employees, but also for healthcare peers at other institutions. Dues from external members support development of our resources, and Mayo also gains from the experiences and insights of member colleagues from around the world.
While external premium members pay $495 annually for access to the training resources and the member-only community, those benefits (and more) are available at no charge to every Mayo Clinic employee and student.
Your complimentary benefits include:
- The Mayo Clinic-Hootsuite Social Media Basics for Healthcare course (a $400 value),
- Live monthly webinars ($95 value each) on social media and healthcare topics, plus access to archived sessions, and
- The member-only MCSMN community.
Mayo Clinic employees also receive discounts of at least 50 percent (and sometimes more) on regular registration for our Social Media Residency course, Member Meetings and other MCSMN events.
Please register now (remember to use your mayo.edu email address) for your free Mayo Clinic Premium Membership.
Next, please join the Mayo Clinic Social Media Champions program (log in with your same MCSMN account) so you can share Mayo-curated health-related news with your networks on Facebook and Twitter.
In addition to the Social Media Basics Certificate, we provide these Guidelines to help you better understand how to participate appropriately via social media. Note, too, this video that's part of Mayo Clinic Orientation:
