A short, focused discussion of emergency medicine topics with perspectives from emergency physicians as well as other specialties. Here's the problem: When I listen to a 45 minute lecture that goes through about 15 different studies and has 50 slides, I come out feeling like a genius. An hour later, I have forgotten 95% of it. Here's the solution: ercast. We cover a single issue and try to tease out all the relevant elements without overstuffing your frontal cortex. It's for physicians and anyone interested in a bare bones look at emergency care.

Rob Orman is the man

If you're going to actually subscribe to one evidence based, CME generating podcast in emergency medicine, it this should be the one.

Informative, and on point

If you want information that is backed by evidence-based practice and research then you won’t be disappointed by listening to these podcasts. They are cutting edge, full of info and lively!!

However, if you are listening and not being drawn into the discussion between Dr.Z and his guests or find this podcast a yawn (I am directing this comment to those who are healthcare providers: Docs/NPs/RN/PAs) then you need to seriously reflect on why you have lost your passion to effectively care for patients.

Continue to bring it on Dr.Z!!

Excellent

I’ve been a practicing ED doc out of residency for 15 years. Every episode brings useful information and is well worth listening to.
