The Podcast: Medical Minute - The Emergency Medical Minute

The Podcast: Medical Minute

Medical Minutes move quickly to reflect current events, are inspired by real patient care, and speak to the true nature of what it’s like to work in the Emergency Room or Pre-Hospital Setting. Each Medical Minute episode is recorded in a real emergency department, by the emergency physician or clinical pharmacist on duty – the ER is our studio.
