Inspired my love for internal medicine

I’ve just been blown away by the quality of the Curbsiders series. As a medical student, their podcast really inspired and developed my love of internal medicine and as a resident, their podcasts have formed the backbone of my education. I’m constantly quoting curbsides pearls on rounds and sharing episodes with the interns and medical students on my team as a senior resident. Incredibly appreciative of all the hard work the Curbsiders team puts in to help educate internists, residents and medical students.

Love this!
