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.

Has Mayo Clinic published its metrics so that other institutions can leverage them as a baseline?

Great question. Has anyone actually been promoted at Mayo yet with these criterion?

Do you rely on Symplur or prefer to have your own institutional metrics?
