Thoughtful and insightful - great for all medics

When I started listening, I expected a bit of banter, some dark humour, and topical discussions. I did get a bit of banter, but, more importantly, thoughtful takes on very real topics that affect students and junior doctors. It is tailored to the medical student context, recognising that we often have less say in the clinical environment; that our clinical rotations do not always give us enough time to learn how the hospital works (how do you bleep someone? aren't pagers obsolete?).

In each episode, students chat with more experienced doctors to get their take and stories of what works and what doesn't. It seems each episode is intentionally practical, as compared to only teaching what should be best practice - and each episode has "practice-changing" pointers. Bite-size, easy to listen - I wish I'd listened to this before starting clinical years...

Must listen for all medical students

I would highly recommend this series of podcasts to all medical students or fresh grads. The topics are very relevant and I wish I knew about them earlier on in medical school, for example how to choose and organise a good project. It’s informative yet easy to listen to whilst multitasking. Thanks for the great tips!
