Must Reads for #CEs

Last week, Jason Frank (@drjfrankasked the Twitter-verse “What are the top 3 books you would recommend to someone interested in medical education?”  the response was big! Over 55 recommendations poured in; the results are compiled below for your reading pleasure. (And as a great holiday gift for a health professions educator on your list)

We’ve included the links to Amazon for your convenience. (BTW, I have no financial ties/conflict of interest)  You’ll also find the names and twitter handles of those who recommended the books – educators you should definitely be following on Twitter.

I would love to hear your recommendations for the top health professions education books as well. Leave a comment below and the list will get updated.
