Interesting and so helpful

Being a newcomer to the specialty field altogether, but specifically Internal Medicine, this podcast has been incredibly helpful. I had to dive back into my textbooks prior to making the the transition from GP to IM but I am always looking for more info and resources to improve my tech skills/knowledge! This is perfect for that. Thanks so much for making this podcast specifically for us technicians.
