PodMD and SurgicalPerformance

SurgicalPerformance users are invited to produce a podcast in the area of their expertise to assist with the learning of GPs and other specialists.

PodMD is a fantastic initiative, created by Dr Sean Mackay, Upper GI Surgeon, and Caroline Chaplin, Director of the business consultancy RWS. PodMD is a medical knowledge-sharing initiative that gives listeners direct access to informative and up-to-date podcasts by medical professionals.

The growing library of podcasts was initially targeted to GPs but is now expanding to include Specialist-to-Specialist knowledge sharing.

SurgicalPerformance’s own Professor Andreas Obermair will be contributing with two specialist-to-specialist podcasts of his own very soon.

For the founders of PodMD, the vision is to make it like a ‘Wikipedia’ for medical knowledge – doctors-to-doctors, no pharma or corporate influence; just colleagues helping each other out.

We would recommend specialists to support this initiative, get involved, make contact with Caroline or forward suggestions for Podcasts directly via email, [email protected].
