Abstract

Social media has increasingly been used as a platform by medical providers. The positive contribution is also balanced by risks and governed by codes of professionalism by the medical community. The values of medical professionalism include universal tenets and also those unique to the Arab world and the United Arab Emirates. We propose that institutional guidelines and self-governance in the medical community are important.

Keywords: Self-governance, Social media, Medical professionalism, Patient confidentiality, Scientific knowledge, Medical community.
