Useful for an IM resident
Fun and easy to listen to on my way to work! As an IM resident, it’s hard to fit in a lot of formal learning and reading so this is a good way for me to review some content without a lot of activation energy. The topics have been very relevant and useful
CoreIM is my favorite of all the medical podcasts out there. The episodes are thoughtful, comprehensive, reach such unique areas of medicine - from clinical reasoning, to education, to IPE and way beyond. It is clear that the producers are committed to churning out extremely high quality content for the audience in an organized and efficient way! Thank you for helping the medical community stay up to date while having fun listening!
A must-listen podcast!
I want to be best friends with all of the hosts and guest speakers featured in these podcasts! Everyone’s stories are so captivating and relatable, and the questions they ask+answer are so insightful.
The content of each episode is also so carefully curated with a great attention to detail. It’s clear that everything spoken serves a purpose in enriching the context and driving forward the message of the episode. This thoughtful design sets CoreIM apart from other podcasts, which can be more longwinded and dry. CoreIM is short, sweet, and loaded with quality content—each episode packs a powerful punch!
