I started Medical Fun Facts after a friend at work asked that whenever I visit her at her work station I share with her a medical fun fact. Given my knowledge-base is focussed mainly on medical microbiology, infectious diseases, some aspects of pathology and a little bit about health emergency management, this podcast will probably reflect these areas. It’s highly unlikely I will delve into psychiatry or endocrinology, not because they are not interesting, but mainly because I don’t have much to do with those areas of medicine. Now I should point out that I am a registered medical practitioner in Australia. I have general registration in medicine and specialist registration in microbiology. I want to make it very clear that I am not forming a doctor patient relationship with anyone through this podcast and I am not offering clinical advice in the treatment of any particular person. If you need medical advice you should consult a registered medical practitioner in your area. I also suggest you do not see practitioners of alternative or complementary or integrative medicine. See a fair dinkum doctor and always consider a second opinion. If you disagree with anything in these podcasts or if you would like to voice a different view please feel free to write a comment. If I have said something incorrect I welcome correction. Please also feel free to share your comments on social media.

Customer Reviews

Knowledgeable and well-presented

Dr Lum clearly has a dear love of human pathology, especially all things related to microbiological disease in humans. He also has a talent in teaching and imparting his great knowledge to those who will listen.


Very interesting and well researched podcast for anyone interested in microbiology. Great work Gary.

Fantastic source of education.

Gary consistently has engaging stories to share, his knowledge of the subject matter is deep and furthermore, easy to digest. And most importantly, his oration skills are superb, coming across fluently with his podcasts. Anyone with an interest in medicine should take a moment to listen to his podcasts. After all, medicine is pathology!.
