Each episode will go through a landmark clinical trial that has shaped medicine as we know it. We will go through all the big and important studies that have made the practice of medicine what it is today, the ones that have formed the basis of our guidelines and the ones we should all probably know about to improve the care of our patients. This podcast aims to keep you up to date with the scientific medical literature, so that you can learn about the most important studies, learn the evidence behind the common medications you use and the new medications on the market. It is set for beginners so you don't have to know anything about statistics or have done research. It's even suitable for those that hated evidence based medicine and journal clubs during medical school.
