Multipotent M.D. is a podcast where we invite Canadian medical students, residents, and physicians to help us navigate through this crazy career we’ve chosen to pursue. Every week we have a guest on the show to chat with us about their experiences in medical school and residency, and to tell us about all the ins and outs of their speciality.
We are Ziad and Christopher, 3rd year medical students at Schulich School of Medicine in London, ON, and we invite you to tune in every Thursday for a brand new episode of Multipotent M.D.
