Learning on the go

As most medics have to fit in their CPD (continual professional development) around seeing patients, meetings and life in general, there is a wealth of professional podcasts on offer. Although some of these are quite specialised, many of them use easily understandable language with explanation of specialist terms used to make them accessible to all types of medics and therefore the general public prepared to learn about a specific topic.

Some examples of podcasts which anyone can listen to are:
