Cornerstone of FOAmed
This series is undoubtedly one of the most in depth, interesting, educational, and useful podcasts out there. Definitely in the top 5 of all time best educational podcasts. I can’t wait until the next episode every week. Awesome!
One of the best EM education podcasts I’ve ever discovered
I’m a United States EMS professional that was just accepted to PA school, and I have been listening for about a year. This podcast has some of the most robust and comprehensive reviews of EM education available in easy-to-digest formats, which are then supplemented with wonderfully designed online resources. I am frequently blown away by the amount of information retention I have because of the intentionality of EM Cases to create such an incredible platform. I am confident I will continue to be listening for years to come. Thank you for all your hard work!
Still the best EM podcast around
US MS3 student here — no other podcast that I’ve found provides the same depth of discussion, up-to-date clinical expertise, and multi-modal learning through the pdf summaries, question bank, and website. This podcast was one of the first things that made me feel interested and passionate about medicine back before med school, and I have no doubt I’ll keep listening to it through residency and beyond. Especially love the Quick Hits! So much learning and review in under an hour.
