At Vanderbilt University Medical Center, we not only recognize that social media are here to stay, we believe it is critical for us as an organization to be active and stay abreast of trends in social media.
VUMC was one of the first medical centers in the country to develop a social media policy to guide use of social media by its faculty, staff and students. Helping you participate in social media without getting yourself or Vanderbilt into trouble is the goal of this policy as well as the tools and resources on these pages.
You likely have a profile in one or more social networks. You may also comment on blogs or online communities and news sites. If so, please be sure to read the policy to make sure you understand how it applies to your activity.
