How do you learn? How do you teach?

Our podcasts come loaded with show notes, infographics, transcripts, and more, to help you utilize what works best. We love hearing from you and how you incorporate our resources into your lifelong learning and teaching.

Here are just a sample of what we’ve learned from you!

1. More meaningful bedside rounds

Last week, our team had 4 admissions in the morning with two related to alcohol withdrawal. We didn’t have much time for teaching so I emailed them the alcohol treatment podcast. The next day, we were able to gameplan the treatment options for the patient, go to the bedside with the intern leading brief counseling and providing a ‘menu of Rx options.’ The team got so much more out of that. The team and patient was thankful! More 5 pearls like this please! – Family Physician in Iowa

2. Role modeling clinical reasoning and critical thinking

I have noticed in myself a change after listening to Core IM Mind the Gap and Hoofbeats segments. I used to think the best teaching hospitalists were ones who could give a great chalk talk but now I believe it’s a real win when I can facilitate conversations among my team on their clinical reasoning and critical thinking. I feel much more confident in doing this  after the role modeling I get from listening to Mind the Gap and Hoofbeats. – Hospitalist in Georgia

3. Before or after seeing a patient with a particular pathology

These podcasts have been helpful in solidifying points. If I just saw a patient that I was concerned about for adrenal insufficiency, I will listen to the adrenal insufficiency podcast on my way home. But the best is when I can listen to a podcast in advance. For example, I knew about an overnight admission with “AMS 2/2 UTI” so I listened to that Mind the Gap episode on my way to work, used show notes also to find references and used it to teach rounds. It sticks much more when you can use it immediately to teach others. The podcasts setup with sections also help me focus my teaching. – Nurse Practitioner in Texas

4. Infographics on rounds or as references

After listening to a podcasts, the infographics (and show notes) are something I will refer back to. I will pull up the contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) infographic when making decisions on risk of CIN for a patient. Or when I am screening for red flags signs for a headache, I literally see Mike Natter’s drawing and make sure I am not missing anything in my history. – PGY-2 in Canada

5. Flipped classrooms

I send out the latent TB podcast before giving a lecture on it and find learners telling me they get so much more of my talks because they were primed. It’s nice that afterwards, they don’t feel they have don’t have to refer to pulmonary as much for latent TB. Thank you for all your hard work on these podcasts!” – Pulmonologist in California
