Debate Tackles Physicians and Social Media

Morgenstern Leon 140px

Leon Morgenstern, MD, was the founding director of Surgery at Cedars-Sinai. He died in 2012.

The 13th Annual Dr. Leon Morgenstern Great Debates in Clinical Medicine Resident Competition will convene Friday, June 3, at 8 a.m. in Harvey Morse Auditorium.

This year's topic is "Physicians and Social Media: Threat to Professionalism or an Essential Part of Contemporary Medical Practice?" Ryan Spurrier, MD, will argue that social media represents a threat to professionalism, while Justin Steggerda, MD, will contend that it has become a necessary part of medical practice.

The winner will receive the Morgenstern Trophy and a cash prize.

Last year's event drew a standing-room-only crowd. The debate committee expects a similar response this year.

This one-hour event will anchor Cedars-Sinai's annual Founders Day.

Comments of questions about the Morgenstern Debate should be sent to Leo Gordon, MD, at leo.gordon@cshs.org.
