Using TED Talk-style Presentations for Health Care Professional Education

As educators, we are always looking for something different and effective in medical education. The explosive popularity of TED Talks has made educators take notice. These micro-presentations showcase well-formed ideas, or new or surprising ideas, or they challenge a belief, presenting a new argument within the context of an established issue. They tend to draw large audiences and became popular among the general public.
