Social Media Scholarship as a Criterion for Academic Promotion

Social Media Scholarship as a Criterion for Academic Promotion

Thu, Oct 12, 2017
11:30am to 12:30pm CT


During 2016 Mayo Clinic’s Academic Appointments and Promotions Committee began using social media scholarship as part of their metrics for promotion. This led to an overwhelming amount of requests for details on how-to-do-it and guidance in implementation.

In response, Dr. Cabrera co-authored – along with Dr. Bryan Vartabedian, Dr. Robert Spinner, Lee Aase, Barbara Jordan and Dr. Farris Timimi - a conceptual framework and a how-to-do guideline in the Journal of Graduate Medical Education.

In this webinar, Dr. Cabrera will discuss:


  • The difficulties Mayo Clinic faced integrating digital and social media scholarly activities into academic promotions criteria.
  • The main criteria adopted for social media and digital scholarship for Academic Promotions.

Dr. Daniel Cabrera is an assistant professor of Emergency Medicine at Mayo Clinic. He is originally from Chile where he was part of one of the pioneer emergency medicine training programs. Dr. Cabrera came to Mayo Clinic for residency and stayed as faculty since 2008.

Dr. Cabrera has a passion for knowledge and learning, ranging from obscure popular culture to simplicity, emergency medicine and rhizomatics. "I think we are in the verge of a quantum leap in how we manage and learn medical knowledge; tearing down the walls limiting development and distribution while moving to an open creation, access, review and modification paradigm.”
