As premedical, medical, and other healthcare students, it's important to know textbook knowledge in medical education and understand what it's like for patients to experience medicine. MedStud Memoirs tackles both of these in this medical school podcast. First, we'll discuss the science of specific conditions, then our best podcasts come from people who have lived with the condition or doctors who have treated it. To get a glimpse of the next condition, complete our treat the sneak peak module.
Med Stud Memoirs is hosted by Brian Elliott and Sarah Halbert, students at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University. To meet the rest of our staff, simply go to our about us page. As a collective group of medical students, we wanted to see where textbook medical education fits into the real world.
