Amazing

As a medical student, this is really perfect to keep up to date with clinical materials

Great! I love the NEJM weekly summary podcast

I think the narration is excellent! Very clear and easy to listen to -not sure why someone would label it "annoying".
As a licensed clinical Social Worker who practices in an ambulatory oncology setting it is vital that I maintain a current knowledge of Cancer diagnosis and treatment as well as of the general U.S. Medical landscape if I am to be an effective advocate for and psycho-educator of the patients and families I support.
NEJM weekly summary is a wonderful part of my routine learning.
The Journal is fabulous and the summary is clear, succinct, and elucidating.
