What no one tells you about medical school is just how remarkable it really is. Thanks to the medical students at the University of Iowa med school, and their co-host Dave Etler, you have a window into what *really* happens here at the margins of medicine, and we're here for you every week. Our goal: honest and fun discussions about the things you need to know about being a med student, medicine, and medical education. Get the inside story: give us your questions, comments, and suggestions on social media, at TheShortCoat.com, or by calling 347-SHORTCT. Contribute to our charity of the semester and get SCP merch at The Short Coat Podcast Store.



The opinions we share with you are formed by the sleep deprived, and are thus likely ill-considered and noticeably spur-of-the-moment. And definitely not those of the University of Iowa.

Good show

Fun to listen to, engaging conversations (with political bias), and if you write in, you are very likely to get on the show.

Fun, usually informative, occasional unilateral identity politics

Mostly enjoyable content with wide variety. Formal interviews, candid discussion and hilarious games. Hosts usually stick to medical school topics but sometimes dive into pseudo-related political issues without any conservative perspectives to spark productive civil discourse. If you really enjoy politically progressive positive feedback loops you’ll absolutely love these segments of the show. Regardless, I listen every week.

Not just for Med Students

I’m not a med student. Or even a student. But there is still a lot of interesting conversation and ideas about the practice of medicine that I find really relevant to all people!
