Perfect Study Break!
I am currently in the midst of studying for Step 2 CK, and I couldn’t have asked for a better break time activity. Though I know these are experiences that we all must go through as med students, rarely do I get to hear how impactful and challenging they are for everyone, not just myself. Listening to this today made me a feel a little more human and reminded me why I put myself through the USMLE torture.
Excellent Podcast for Aspiring Medical Professionals and the People Who Love them
I am a med student and stumbled across this podcast while searching for some audio test prep. The album artwork immediately caught my eye and the title made me laugh so I figured I would give it a listen. I am so glad I did. I found the first episode very engaging. I really liked the host and the doctors who were interviewed. The theme song is cool, too. It was particularly interesting to me because my first cadaver experience was not that long ago and is still very fresh in my mind. The second episode was a lot of fun. I had my girlfriend listen to it with me in the car. She liked it, too, and she's a law student, so I don't think you'd have to be a med student to really get something out of this podcast, although it certainly doesn't hurt!
I couldn’t stop listening!
This podcast is amazing! I recommend it to anyone, but as a physician myself it’s so easy to relate! From my first cadaver to the first time I had to examine an attractive young patient to my first death, these stories had me at times rolling on the floor laughing and at other times gripping my seat. A perfect length podcast, My First Cadaver helps us all relate to physicians and the medical community. I cannot wait to hear what these guys put out next!
