Great for residents

Tools on how to have the most difficult conversations with our patients... and more importantly, how to keep our humanity.
I particularly recommend episodes 3 (Hope), 5 and 6 (part 1&2 of Both sides of the stethoscope). Looking forward to the next episode!

This show is just getting going but you can tell it’s got the makings of a great podcast series. Touching stories mixed in with learning how to talk about the hard stuff, a very thought-provoking listen.
