A great way to begin my Tuesday mornings
As a rural pediatrician of over 30 years, I so appreciate the knowledge gained weekly from this informative and approachable podcast. It sets my 12 hour office day on a hopeful footing.
increasingly political, much like medicine in general
This latest episode really was stunningly illustrative about how political the practice of medicine has become, even in pediatrics. It’s really too bad. I used to come here to keep my practice current and medically sound. Now I come here and feel like the AAP simply has a political axe to grind. The earlier episodes were much better, and I’ll still frequent the pod for pertinent medical information as I see it come up.
Short but informative
This simple podcast gives me bits of evidence based medicine without all the lengthy details.
