5 Pearls

Solidify 5 applicable, relevant pearls on an Internal Medicine topic! We incorporate active learning strategies, such as pre-podcast quizzing, purposeful pauses as well as intentional repetition. The last pearl of some of the podcasts will review a take away from a prior podcast for spaced repetition. 

Mind the Gap

These thoughtful insights will take you deeper into the evidence – or lack thereof – for common IM practices to tackle knowledge gaps and challenge dogma.


Challenge yourself to solve diagnostically difficult cases, and hear from experienced clinicians who will be trying to solve them with you in real time. Then, join Dr. John Hwang and Dr. Cindy Fang on the hunt for bits of wisdom — clinical pearls, reasoning techniques, rules of thumb, diagnostic schema — cognitive tools that might be helpful for your next patient!
