LinkedIn and X (Twitter) networking — for health science PhD students

Back due to popular demand! PhD course at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences in Copenhagen is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except CBS) and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries.

This is a practical, hands-on workshop in health science networking and communication via the social media platforms LinkedIn and X (formerly Twitter).

All scientists, researchers and communicators can extend their reach and international impact on the two platforms. But scientists within the health and medical sector will find LinkedIn and X particularly useful:

  • The platforms allow real time access to, for example, patients’ and public perspectives, communities of support, and to advocacy groups internationally — but within a narrow medical specialization.
  • The increased use of visual abstracts and digital formats in communicating research has been helped by the LinkedIn and X scientific community.

There are more details about the course description below the short introductory video below:

The course is at the University of Copenhagen’s Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and is open to all PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School) and for PhD students at graduate schools in other Nordic countries.

A typical ‘visual abstract’. A shareable digital format that has taken off in recent years, particularly in the health and medical sciences.

The course goals

You will:

  • Learn how to use LinkedIn and X to support your work and career as a researcher
  • Find a social media routine that fits your personality, daily routine and specific medical specialty
