pATIENT AND provider resources
The Believers Medicine Essentials
Listed are my recommendations for resources that can prove beneficial to the practice of medicine for providers across all disciplines. There are also links to websites that contain helpful educational materials, handouts and worksheets that can prove helpful in a pursuit to discover more about a cancer diagnosis for patients.
Favorite YouTube Channel – JAMA Network
This YouTube channel is produced by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The JAMA Network has an excellent YouTube Channel that is both comprehensive, current and creative. The channel contains animated article summaries and whiteboard videos that are entertaining and informative. Topics are carefully selected and relevant to patient care. Experts interviews give primary care providers, as well as specialists, useful information and pearls that are critical for the practice of evidence based medicine. The JAMA Network YouTube channel also contains socially conscious videos that help providers remain focused on compassionate care. One of my favorite videos is Street Medicine. I wish there were more animated articles summaries and whiteboard videos, as I found these videos to be particularly engaging. It hardly feels like you are learning when watching
Favorite Internal Medicine Podcast – The Curbsiders
There is no surprises in this category. The Curbsiders has quickly become a favorite amongst medical professions across all disciplines. This podcast is humorous and engaging. The show is hosted by Chris Chiu, who also hosts Cribsiders, and Paul Williams. There are also guests hosts, such as medical students, that add to the laid back dynamic of the show. Guest speakers are experts in their respective fields and have extensive experience in clinical practice, research, drafting guidelines and clinical practice. Each guest talks through a book recommendation and a practice pearl before starting the discussion. There are detailed show notes with links to articles and guidelines referenced in the show. The podcast site also contains useful infographics, which simply the work up and treatment of various conditions. Not only is it possible to receive Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit for listening to the show, some episodes lead to Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credit with the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) through the American College of Physicians (ACP). This podcast showcases the practice of evidence based medicine at it best. One of the most impactful episodes is Homeless Healthcare.
Favorite Pediatric Medicine Podcast – The Cribsiders
The Cribsiders is the sister show to the Cursiders podcast. The format is similar with guest speakers that are leaders in their respective fields as discussion centers on clinical guidelines, practice pearls and contemporary topic in pediatrics. The show is hosted by Chris Chui, who also hosts the Curbsiders podcast, and Justin Berk. There are also detailed show notes and infographics embedded within each show. The podcast website is colorful and easy to navigate. Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit is provided through the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Health. Similar to Curbsiders, listeners can obtain Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credit with the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). For those who are trained in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, it is also possible to obtain MOC with the American Board of Internal Medicine with certain pediatric topics. You cannot help but to walk away a better pediatrician after listening to this podcast. One of of my favorite episodes deals with De-mist-ifying Vaping.
