We believe in the educational merits of Free Open Access Medical education (FOAM), which includes podcasts, blogs, articles on PubMed Central, conferences streamed for free and more. As a result, we would like to encourage others to move beyond quoting podcasts and into the realm of tying “cutting edge” FOAM to the core content. We’ll provide some review and references for listeners to go read. Why, indeed, should we FOAM it alone when FOAM can inspire us to go, read, think, and be excellent?

COVID Cast

The best up to date review of the pandemic from a practical clinical perspective. They are reviewing data almost daily with an honest appraisal and frequently cautioning you from drawing strong conclusions.
