A must for medical educators

KeyLIME is a must for medical educators. Articles chosen address Issues that are on everyone’s mind. Discussions are always lively and insightful. If I’m not learning something new, I’m reminded of something invaluable. The podcast gets better with time.

jameslhuffman ,

Amazing content, improving (but not yet quite right) audio

One of the highest yield resources (not just podcasts) for medical educators available. Audio is light-years better than it was a year ago, but still not awesome (tends to be Jason's connection).

Short, digestible and completely worthwhile with impact. This is a "must" for medical education scholars or those aspiring to that role.
