We know being a doctor means you are busy caring for patients, handling miscellaneous business tasks, hectic schedules in your personal life, as well as continuing your medical education. This makes it hard to take the time out of your day to read up on new medical innovations or ideas. What can you do? Try listening to a Podcast.
Podcasts have increasingly become a great form of getting the information you want quickly and entertainingly. Below we’ve listed five different podcasts that can help you stay on top of your game when it comes to being well-informed.
The NEJM Weekly
The NEJM Weekly Audio Summary is a weekly general medical journal that publishes new medical research findings, review articles, and editorial opinion on a wide variety of topics of importance to biomedical science and clinical practice.
The Future of Healthcare – Nathan Dollinger
The Future of Healthcare releases a new podcast each week, ranging in topics from health and wellness to technology and healthcare policy.
Their website states this podcast is a journey! With new research and unexpected events continuing in healthcare, we expect to interview people on the cutting edge of these changes. Hopefully, allowing us to gain a glimpse into what the future could hold based on their knowledge and experiences.
2 Docs Talk
The podcast 2 Docs Talk, Kendall Britt, MD, and Amy Rogers, MD, cover a wide variety of topics in the medical space. Together Dr. Britt and Dr. Rogers talk about the issues that they feel healthcare consumers want to understand so that they are better equipped to partner with their own physicians actively to make the best decisions for their own health.
Straight Talk MD Podcast
Dr. Frank Sweeney operates Straight Talk MD. His podcast is amazing. If you enjoy listening to hot-button issues like medical marijuana and vaccinations, this may be for you. This podcast doesn’t entirely devote its’ efforts to medically focused content, but you will still find plenty of topics on healthcare.
Bedside Rounds Podcast
Bedside Rounds. This podcast by Dr. Adam Rodman brings a very different spin on medical podcasts. According to his website, Rodman stats he started the podcast in the summer of 2014 when he was a second-year resident at Oregon Health and Science University. He then goes on to say it was started after he was unable to find a great narrative-based medical podcast like Radiolab or 99% Invisible.
