Night before rotations

My very first clinical rotation as a PA student is dermatology - listening to your podcast has helped calm my nerves. I hope my preceptors are as helpful and understanding as you both. Thanks!

Amazing podcast

I love this podcast! Lots of great information about applying into dermatology and the road ahead as a dermatologist. What an incredible service to medical students and others interested in dermatology. Thank you so much Drs. Liu and Mostaghimi!

Great Content, Poor Volume

I LOVE this podcast. As a medical student interested in Dermatology, this is a great look into what a career in dermatology can look like. The episodes are consistently insightful and entertaining. The opinions expressed are new and well articulated. The hosts don’t give the same cliche advice you can find on every blogpost on the internet. They give thoughtful insights that they have gathered from years applying to dermatology and running the application from the other end. They truly do a great job. THANK YOU! The only down side is some poor volume control and overall poor audio quality. It seems to be getting better though!
