What no one tells you about medical school is just how remarkable it really is. Thanks to the medical students at the University of Iowa med school, and their co-host Dave Etler, you have a window into what *really* happens here at the margins of medicine, and we're here for you every week. Our goal: honest and fun discussions about the things you need to know about being a med student, medicine, and medical education. Get the inside story: give us your questions, comments, and suggestions on social media, at TheShortCoat.com, or by calling 347-SHORTCT. Contribute to our charity of the semester and get SCP merch at The Short Coat Podcast Store.



The opinions we share with you are formed by the sleep deprived, and are thus likely ill-considered and noticeably spur-of-the-moment. And definitely not those of the University of Iowa.

Refreshing!

I love the mix of humor, light scientific discussions, and unique student perspectives. The host does a wonderful job provoking conversation from his guests and is fun without being over-the-top. I listened as a pre-med and love it even more as a med student. Also, politics and medicine are inseparable, please don’t let the other reviewer deter you from having conversations about things that impact your future career and patients. Thanks guys!

Get to know the nurses

It’s important for physicians to treat nurses with respect. I’m glad there are people talking about this issue, especially at the med student level.
