More than a trillion SMS or text messages were sent by mobile phone or PDA in 2007. Although there are recent articles in medical journals and anecdotal reports on the use of SMS/text messaging in medicine, they represent a very small percentage of total SMS usage.
The National Library of Medicine has developed a tool to search MEDLINE/PubMed using SMS. We would like to know how practicing physicians and future doctors perceive the use of SMS/text messaging in medicine.
Thank you for your participation.
