Since 2010, the students at the University of Iowa’s Carver College of Medicine have chipped away at that question. Studying’s important, blah, blah, but we’d prefer to do it while laughing, thinking, and having fun along the way.
The Short Coat Podcast is about remembering that current events, the social aspects of medicine and medical education, and the people that make our work interesting are just as important as the science and the test scores. It can be a place for the party line, and a place for the counter-narrative. It’s about whatever you want it to be about. Whether you’re already in med school, or thinking about applying, we’re here to let you in on the secrets, the fun bits, the challenges, and the frustrations.
