Remixologist ,

Love this podcast

I’m an EMT studying for paramedic, and this podcast has helped me have a more comprehensive grasp on the patient’s journey.

Alex - PA STUDENT ,

Great refresher

New listener. Im a PA student entering clinical rotations. I have ED for my first rotation and found this podcast while looking for resources to help me prepare. Podcast is fantastic and exactly what I was looking for. Not heavy on the pathophysiology (which is perfect) but a quick review on the clinical and practical approach to patients who present to the ED with this or that chief complaint. I feel much more confident going into my rotation having started this podcast.
