    Volume fluctuates frequently but great content
    I love the content but it’s so frustrating that the volume is frequently fluctuating depending on who is speaking or how they have their head turned. I will be listening in my car and I am having to turn the volume up and down throughout the episodes. Frustrating

    Excellent MedEd Resource with high value information
    This podcast is excellent and filled with high value information. Very learner oriented, but I think there’s something for all levels here.
  • Dr. Michaela S.
    I love R and R
    There is something for all learners in this podcast. Most of cases are problems that I will never see in my lifetime but they are really good about going through their thought train in order to come up with the final diagnosis. They have helped me organize my thinking which has made me a better instructor to my students.

    The hosts choose subpar cases to discuss; most of their deductions are not backed by evidence; and their facade of “democratizing” evidence is cheapened by them asking for paid subscriptions. I would recommend steering away from this podcast as to not stroke the egos of these people.

    The first time I have ever heard a frank discussion about the difficulty in family planning for women in medicine. Episode 158.

    Episode 137
    Every episode is wonderful, but episode 137 was PACKED with insightful discussion and schematics. Thanks!
  • Nifermorg
    I can’t get enough of this pod cast! I have listened to most episodes more than once.
  • a miserable fallen creature
    How “amazed” are you really?
    The host spends an inordinate amount of time saying how “in awe” he is that the guest clinician is able to interpret results/construct a DDx. It’s extremely awkward and off-putting. Plus, they inject way too much lefty hype into their show themes. I came to gain clinical knowledge, not to hear a polisci lecture. MedEd is populated by self-important narcissists, and this show just proves that.

    Conversations + Solutions We Need at a Desperate Time
    Thank you for this crucial and timely show. Grateful for your outstanding guests, constructs, and thought leadership. Gives me hope that we can dismantle racism in medicine and make healthcare antiracist. You have my highest recommendation!
  • VeronikaKhol
    Thanks from a rising PGY1
    This pod is a joy. Amazing work!!
  • LeeAGNP2b
    Equivalent to eating chocolate.
    I’m a DNP student in primary care and the dialogues in these podcasts illuminate pathophysiologic connections that reading texts often cannot. Communicating these processes and clinical manifestations is a true gift; thank you for sharing. Lee. —Grand Rapids, MI
  • Rojweber
    An essential podcast for anyone interested in clinical reasoning, developing differential diagnoses, and internal medicine.

    I found my favorite podcast
    I made Twitter account last year which it led me to this podcast. I learned so much from them and it is very useful to refresh medical knowledge. I am binge listening to this podcast, lol, while running, walking, doing housework. I just love it.
  • T.Howard.
    Great podcast!
    Current cards fellow. Use this to keep up to speed on gen medicine topics. Love listening during commute and at the gym.

    Best IM podcast out there
    The podcast is amazing and much more to the point than some other popular IM casts (which shall not be named). So informative and cuts the fluff so it’s easier to listen during my busy schedule. Also absolutely love their schema on the site and app, well worth buying!
  • Nolavisitor
    Well curated content. The cases are presented succinctly and really enjoy the experts and specialists that join as special guests. Great job including diverse speakers as well.
  • luke eastburg
    Good teaching, would be better without the giggling
    Great content but cut the constant giggling. You’re all good teachers, but not funny. As listeners, we don’t appreciate your inside jokes.
  • From the crypts of lieberkühn
    Good content, very scripted
    This podcast is great with regards to content, schema and getting a lot of information across very efficiently. However after listening to many of their episodes the thing that makes it hard to listen to at times is how apparently scripted it sounds. Having it scripted is certainly one of the reasons it’s so efficient and delivers the important points. However, there a plenty of podcasts that are scripted but the conversation does not sound like they are reading off the script or making the conversation fake. But the content is great overall and the time is well spent. May be tough for some listeners who will become annoyed at how strongly scripted it sounds at time.

    Great podcast
    Really awesome, thank you for the continued episodes. In medical school now and feel that this podcast is helping me develop clinical reasoning.
  • da willmeista
    Great concept with marginal execution
    The asides are generally too lengthy, the teaching points are occasionally pedantic with little clinical applicability (more “roundsmanship”-focused), and the idea of applying flow chart-like schemas to everything is too broadly applied. The off topic dialogue desperately needs to be cut in postproduction as well. The strength is the format of the podcast; aliquotted information with intermittent discussion is a very engaging use of cases. I unsubscribed after the hypoglycemia episode due to above issues though.
  • Pete o PEDRITO en ESPAÑA!
    Wonderful educational content & a request
    Been listening for a while now on my commutes to the hospital during my busy intern year. I couldn’t recommend this podcast more. I do have one request though. Is it possible for you guys to figure out why, when the screen locks on apple devices while the episode is playing, the mini-player does not come up that allows us to quickly stop/play, backtrack & fast forward? I often like to go back if I miss something or pause to process a thought or a lesson so it would make it so much easier if that function were to work. Thank you.
  • NAR_MD
    Easy and smooth way to learn medicine I’m second year resident as I transitioned from intern year these schemes helped me a lot to order the right order and find the right diagnosis thanks CPSolvers
  • Solly Hemus
    #1 medicine podcast
    I love Big Rez and the crew! Outstanding content that has really helped shape the way I approach complex clinical scenarios. The love for medicine from these talented educators is infectious and I can’t wait for the release of each new episode!
  • syedahmed949
    Best podcast for medicine and medical students
    Phenomenal podcast sharing patient cases, going thru differentials and showing how to think as a physician and getting down to diagnosis and treatment.. best podcast out there for medicine and medical students! Thank you!
  • Zs124
    Must listen for anyone learning or practicing internal medicine
    Phenomenal content. The hosts are brilliant clinicians, gifted and thoughtful educators, fun people. Highly recommend.
  • G6PDorbust
    My favorite podcast
    I LOVE this podcast - I am a 3rd year medical student and every day I look forward to my drive home from the hospital because I get to listen to a CPS episode! Love the discussions, diagnostic schema, and analysis of every part of these interesting cases. Please keep making great episodes!
  • SnakedoctorMD
    Phenomenal Meducation!
    Truly astounding podcast - I never thought that a “Morning Report” could be recorded and reproduced so well in an audible format, but this has become a great continuing source of education for me!
  • SeanD_BC
    Great content!
    Incredibly educational, medical podcast. The clinical unknowns are like bringing the NEJM CPS articles to life. Have you guys ever thought about uploading the podcast to Stitcher or Spotify??
  • Lebron is Weak-minded
    Great by itself, a force when paired with others
    Great stuff. Listen to this along with The Curbsiders and Core IM and your understanding of common and critical issues in IM will be taken to heights you haven't been to before. Add on a few of the amazing EM podcasts out there (and probably Behind the Knife), and become the medical rockstar that you've always wanted. To get your dose of humanity in order to keep what you do in perspective, listen to The Nocturnists. When you're in the mood to let your mind relax and listen to a story, put on Bedside Rounds and Legends of Surgery. That should help you fill up much of the silent time you experience throughout your week/month. Try it, you'll be amazed at yourself.
  • SGDubya
    Thank you!
    Keep up the great work! Currently a PGY-1 and I thoroughly enjoy hearing a good case presentation and more experienced physicians work through them. I also appreciate your various diagnostic schema’s, approaches, and clinical pearls!
  • Nick E6
    If only...
    ... this was around when I was in medical school. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. A nice, easy way to remember complicated medical diagnoses. Not only that, but how to think, how to learn, and how to not miss crucial diagnoses.
  • Jwalker10
    Good stuff
    As a medical student I enjoy learning from your experience on how to approach these different cases as I’m trying to build my own clinical reasoning. If I had one point of criticism it would be that sometimes I feel like I’m listening to a robot reading a script. Curbsiders are easy to listen to because the discussion is very conversational and if they are reading from a script it doesn’t feel that way at all. Overall I think this is good stuff and will continue to listen. Strong work!
  • Gerads
    fantastic podcast
    I feel like a gorilla listening to these guys articulate through their differentials. Really sharp docs, I feel smarter listening through their eyes. Good stuff, much more interesting than our typical morning reports. will definitely keep this on the rotation. Thanks for producing this! Gerald
  • jiujitsujosh
    Fun medical learning
    This podcast is a fantastic addition to my medical learning. First off, I love the interaction. This is super fun! Second, I am a third-year medical student and appreciate the systematic approach to clinical scenarios. I love hearing the different the schema, and their limitations. This is a new approach to me and I love it!
  • Wylder F
    Amazing resource for students
    Thank you so much for making this podcast! It’s so helpful to hear someone break down a Complaint and approach it systematically
  • mtday
    Finding new ways to expand my clinical reasoning skills in between duties as a resident is often difficult, but podcasts like this really help me to maximize my learning and continue to grow as a physician. Can’t wait for more to come from you guys, thank you for sharing your own clinical reasoning.
  • Tanu90
    This podcast is exactly what I’ve been looking for. The authors take you through a systematic differential diagnosis, teaching you solid principles of diagnostic reasoning. I’m thoroughly enjoying these and hope you continue to make many many more!
