What no one tells you about medical school is just how remarkable it really is. Thanks to the medical students at the University of Iowa med school, and their co-host Dave Etler, you have a window into what *really* happens here at the margins of medicine, and we're here for you every week. Our goal: honest and fun discussions about the things you need to know about being a med student, medicine, and medical education. Get the inside story: give us your questions, comments, and suggestions on social media, at TheShortCoat.com, or by calling 347-SHORTCT. Contribute to our charity of the semester and get SCP merch at The Short Coat Podcast Store.



The opinions we share with you are formed by the sleep deprived, and are thus likely ill-considered and noticeably spur-of-the-moment. And definitely not those of the University of Iowa.

Great mix of serious and funny med school topics

I'm loving your podcasts and have been listening for the past several months. I enjoy the mix of serious topics, Q&A's from listeners, and the funny weird stuff y'all do. The funny bits make me grin like a goof on the subway and have caused me to almost drop a barbell on myself several times at the gym, so thank you for that.
