PodMD creates medical podcasts by doctors for doctors. It is a joint initiative between Dr Sean Mackay, (Melbourne-based upper GI surgeon) and Caroline Chaplin, (Director of RWS).
Remaining clinically up-to-date is an ongoing challenge. Doctors needed a way to reliably and conveniently stay informed. Attending conferences can be expensive and topics are often narrowly focused. Reading medical journals is time consuming and will tend to be very “in-depth” but may lack the broader context that comes from clinical experience.
Podcasts seemed the obvious solution. Updates are punchy and brief, and can be listened to within the clinic setting, whilst exercising or in transit. PodMD creation began in late 2017, committed to the vision of making knowledge sharing easier, and more collegiate for doctors. Since then, we have been building a library of podcasts across many disciplines. Every month more are created, from doctors across Australia.
