Episode 76: Med Ed for Medical Students (Part 1)
Dr. Navin Kumar, an attending gastroenterologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital, medical educator at Harvard Medical School, and co-founder of Run the List podcast talks with RTL host Blake Smith in a two-part series focused on Med Ed. This first episode caters to early trainees and Navin takes listeners through his journey with medical education from his early days as a medical student. The episode walks through Navin's many pearls on becoming involved in Med Ed, including: 1) start early & often, 2) say yes, and 3) practice your skills (informally & formally). Stay tuned for part 2, which will focus on later trainees!
Episode 75: Careers in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine
Dr. Daniela Lamas, an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an attending physician in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital chats with Blake Smith (host) about a career in Pulm/CCM. They talk together about the field of Pulm/CCM at large - from outpatient pulmonary clinic (COPD, asthma) to the ICU - in addition to sub-specializing in specific genetic diseases (CF), lung transplants, or interstitial lung diseases. They also talk about what it's been like to be an intensivist during the pandemic as a clinician at the bedside, navigating difficult conversations with families in new formats. They discuss Dr. Lamas’
love of writing as an outlet for patient care in the hospital, and how she serves as a guest contributor to prominent publications, is a writer on the medical TV show “The Resident”, and author of a newly-published book.

Episode 74: Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure/ARDS
Dr. Morgan Soffler, a Pulmonologist and ICU intensivist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), and an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School, continue a discussion of a patient with hypoxia in the setting of acute respiratory distress (from Ep. 73) with RTL host, Dr. Navin Kumar. Together, they talk through ARDS definition, etiology, pathophysiology, and ventilatory support.
Episode 73: Respiratory Support
Dr. Morgan Soffler, a Pulmonologist and ICU intensivist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), and an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School, discusses a case of a patient with hypoxia in the setting of acute respiratory distress with RTL host, Dr. Navin Kumar. Dr. Soffler begins with a broad differential and provides a framework of timing, tempo, and medical history, along with labs and imaging, to sift through the myriad causes of hypoxia. Together, they walk through different forms of respiratory support and when to escalate this support for patients on the wards.
Episode 72: Pressors
Dr. Brady, an ICU intensivist and the director of the critical care medicine clerkship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), discusses vasopressors and inotropes with RTL host, Dr. Navin Kumar. Together, they use the previous episode's (Ep. 71: Approach to Shock) case of an elderly patient with suspected distributive shock secondary to urosepsis as a framework to approach pressor requirements. Dr. Brady walks through establishing access, how to choose a pressor based on adrenergic physiology, and emphasizes when to take a diagnostic timeout in the ICU.
Episode 71: Approach to Shock
Dr. Brady, an ICU intensivist and the director of critical care medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), explains how to categorize the four major types of shock with RTL host, Dr. Navin Kumar. Together, they discuss a case of an elderly patient with suspected urosepsis and walk through how to reconcile a patient’s history, physical exam, and lab findings along with the ongoing clinical picture. They touch on key decision points for patients in the ICU and end with some clinical pearls on shock management.
As I was shuffling through few med podcasts out there, I noticed myself zone out midway. I stopped listening thinking that podcasts are not for me. But lo- I bumped into this one and and I must say it’s precise, purposely and perfect! And the handouts are just so handy! Kudos to the team!
Keep it up!
Thank you so much for this podcast! I am just starting as a Hospitalist NP and have really appreciated this podcast. I love that the episodes are organized by system and that the content is concise. I also just discovered the handouts online which are a nice review of the highlights. Thanks again!
THE BEST IM PODCAST.
10/10 in quality and content. As an internal medicine resident, I can’t tell you how helpful I find this podcast to be. The info is thorough, concise, evidence-based and easy to absorb. I personally find that other podcasts’ side commentary, excess jokes and foolishness to be an annoying waste of time and difficult to listen to! And as a resident, I certainly don’t have any extra time to waste! But this podcast gets to the point and cuts the nonsense. To Run the List, im so grateful that you would take the time to put together such an amazing podcast. Please upload content multiple times a week!
