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.

Insightful and entertaining

I’m a new listener to this podcast but so far, it’s great. I really appreciate the hosts giving listeners the inside scoop of medschool. Plus, it’s hilarious too. :-)

Literally the best

I found this podcast just a few short months ago and it has for real changed my life. My work commute is better, I have an even bigger appreciation for physicians and medical students and the effort they go through to better our health and the healthcare system, and I have learned so many new and interesting health related things because of this podcast. I’ve always dreamed of being a physician but was on the fence if I had what it took to go through all the school and training. This podcast not only is a great guide for anyone looking to pursue medicine but also a great motivator for those, like me, who were scared or nervous they weren’t good enough. Thank you short coats and Dave for the phenomenal podcast!
