The RCP Medicine podcast is a discussion of different topics relevant to physicians and physician associates. The podcasts are usually hosted by Dr Amie Burbridge, a consultant in acute medicine from Coventry. Episodes discuss and explore different topics including real-life clinical cases, new evidence-based guidelines and specific physician issues in the modern healthcare environment.
