Physicians perspectives: Dr Joseph Kim
Hannah Blake interviews Dr Joseph Kim
Continuing our physician perspectives series, we speak with Dr Joseph Kim. Joseph shares with us his views on social media, mobile health and how he sees the relationship between pharma and physicians evolving in the future.
CME, mhealth and social media are all hot topics within the pharma world at the moment. This month’s physician perspective combines all three hot topics, as we speak with Dr Joseph Kim, who is a physician executive, digital entrepreneur and technologist.
One of his main roles, as President of MCM Education, is speaking about the importance of continuing medical education (CME), which helps physicians to maintain competence and learn about new and developing areas in pharma. But as physicians get busier and busier, pharma needs to be able to find a way to communicate CME, and the latest news, safety warnings and drug developments, more effectively – Joseph shares, in his opinion, what needs to be changed in order to overcome this issue.
