Abstract: This article analyzes the possibility of using social networks for teaching and learning telemedicine. The Telemedicine Laboratory is presented as a case study that offers a learning model supported by the development of a social network in a higher education environment. We performed a qualitative research study through an anonymous survey and participant observation. The results show that the Telemedicine Laboratory allows the generation of new knowledge from a holistic approach to reality, through communication and information technology, supported by the development of a social network. The presence of "invited experts" in the teaching and learning process and the linking of this process to problematic situations that members can "recognize" and perceive as true for their domain increase motivation and constitute success factors in the learning and teaching process.
