Amazing podcast for anyone practicing medicine
They cover such a wide breath of topics this pod cast has episodes that are great for everyone. Episode are well organized, fun, inspiring and full of great information you can apply to your practice, teaching, as a medical student, as a resident, as a specialist. This a great fun way to stay up to date and relevant on multiple topics in medicine. The curbsiders is by far my favorite podcast and the highlight of my commute.
Great clinical pearls to use in practice.
What a phenomenal podcast. So interesting and enjoyed the various topics
Adds Joy to Medicine
Thanks very much for an absolutely great podcast. It has helped patients. It adds joy to medicine. It inspires improvements in process. And, it's fun to know a great medical educator's Spotify list.
Excellent Practical Medical Podcast
I work in full-time orthopedics and PRN volunteer family medicine as a physician assistant. I listened to The Curbsiders throughout school and now during practice. The way they turn complicated topics into more easily manageable problems is extremely helpful. Partially because of this podcast, my interest in primary care has grown, so I will soon be going into primary care full-time.
As a hospitalist, I vastly enjoy this podcast. I listen to it on my way to work. I like the crew, the way the questions are framed in a very practical and informative way and the excellent guests on the show. I recommend this podcast to all my students and colleagues.
Excellent for any Healthcare professional
These podcasts can lead to some great discussions with other healthcare professionals! At the hospital I work at a lot of the pharmacy staff listen to these to learn more about what medical teams do in order to have Inter-professional Education and discussions with the medical teams regarding diagnostic and point of care testing. I would love in the future to see an update on the cholesterol guidelines! These podcasts are my drive to and from work daily! Thank you Curbsiders!
My happy connect to medicine
Time well spent! High yield, practical, top quality cutting edge medical information presented in a fun package. I am subscribed to multiple medical podcasts but I keep returning to this one. They have show notes by email to cement your knowledge and they offer CME through the ACP. This is great for a student or a seasoned practitioner that needs to keep up with the rapidly changing world of medicine. Keep up the great work Curbsiders team!! 5+Stars
Great for students!
This podcast is so helpful as a preclinical medical student. The podcast is structured so the information is easy to follow. I also think that the podcast is great to help students get a better clinical sense and learn how to integrate information. Thank you for putting so much time and effort into this!
Raves, 5 Stars
If you want to learn clinical pearls, evidence based practice in a myriad of disciplines— this is it!! I enjoy every episode I listen to on my hour commute. I am a nurse practitioner and just can’t wait for each new podcast. Curbsiders, you ROCK!
Happier now !
This podcast is EXCELLENT for primary care providers. The best one, by far, I’ve found. I’ve already learned so much. The info is so practical and immediately. I listen on my commute and can often use in clinic that very day.
The docs are relatable and funny which is a perk!
Keep it up!
Pretty decent.. kind of like that extra-medium Nickelback v-neck you didn’t know you wanted until you try it on, then realize that under the right lighting it makes you look totally torqued, so you spend the next ten years armored in your sweet NBV searching for the perfect lighting sitch, but never quite find it, until one day you wake up and look in the mirror in total surprise at the hair on your shoulders and the age in your eyes, cast off your puka shell necklace and get ‘Paul Brigham’ tattooed on your shoulder. ..In short, I’d listen to it.
Best medical podcast
This is the greatest most entertaining podcast and I am so happy that I found it. I learn something valuable (at least one thing, usually more) to put into practice every time I listen. You guys do a great job! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy life to provide all of this knowledge. I’m going to be sad when I catch up listening and have to wait for the next podcast to come out.
New Doctoral Prepared FNP
I love this podcast, I like how they go through diagnosis and treatment on familiar diagnosis. This podcast related to physicians, as well as APRN's, and PA's. It would be nice to see the APRN's and PA's recognized as well. These APRN's and PA's are a big part of adult Gero, and Family practice practitioners. Keep up the great work I learn alot from your podcasts.

One of my favorites!
Lebron is Weak-minded
The Curbsiders is one of the great medical podcasts out there. I use Castbox instead of Itunes Pocasts to listen but I wanted to leave a review here. Whether I’m driving, running, commuting or have any other kind of downtime, I put this on. I’m a radiology resident in the Philippines, and this is one of the podcasts I use (I also enjoy Core IM and Clinical Problem Solvers — whose podcasts also get love from The Curbsider Team) to keep up my clinical knowledge. Besides, there are really any great radiology podcasts out there, so might as well listen to something. There are a bunch of excellent EM casts as well (EM Crit, EM Clerkship, EM Cases, CrackCast, Core EM) but if there’s a new episode out this one gets my listening time first.
I love Curbsiders! As an RN with primarily complicated heme/onc patients and transplants, I’ve learned so much, gone back to the pathophysiology books for refreshers, Up To Date to better comprehend diseases, meds, to do better teaching to patients, ask more Q’s to patients & docs. Drive home from work cueing up previous relevant episodes. Also have insatiable curiosity about disease, symptoms, meds etc because your interest is contagious. Thanks!
3rd Year Student with Internal Medicine Aspirations
It was my New Years resolution that I was going to start listening to podcasts at the gym instead of music, and that started with The Curbsiders. I was listening at the gym religiously, getting through at least one episode a day, maybe 2 sometimes (I listen at 1.5x speed). I finished the entire series in early April, and since then, I’ve been very sad that I finished all the episodes. Luckily, since I have listened to everything, I have a vague memory of all the topics that were covered and can look back at certain topics for reference. I can say that since I’ve started my nephrology rotation, this has been incredibly helpful. I’ll be looking toward The Curbsiders podcast during future internal medicine rotations and future practice!
Acknowledge roles of NPs
Great material but Primary Care is more than physicians. The role of NPs and PAs need to be recognized and acknowledged.
Great tool for ongoing learning
yo yo yo child
As a medical student, I love this podcast as a way to engage with challenging medical topics in an entertaining and helpful way. I'm grateful for everything they do to help me learn!
Fun, Practical, just the BEST
This podcast is not only humorous, but well organized and packed with useful information. They answer so many of the same questions I’ve asked myself many times while rounding on patients in the hospital. And the information is practical for real life practice, not just academic. Thank you from the bottom my heart Curbsiders. You are the best!
This is the best medical/healthcare podcast by far and has been my routine listening while driving to work and home. Keep up the good work guys and hope to meet you all at the ACP meet to thank you all personally for the service to the medical community!
For physicians ears only?
I used to love listening to this podcast, however, with the recent episode I have chosen to unsubscribe. The undertones of distaste and disrespect for RNs, NPs and PAs have always been present, but I chose to ignore this for the quality content. The last episode was small minded and chose to denigrate other care provers as inferior and dangerous. The healthcare field is full of non physicians, get used to it.
I listen to this podcast every chance I can get. I love the humor and great clinical pearls I get from this podcast. I also really appreciate hearing the basic pathophysiology behind each topic. It’s a great way to solidify knowledge. Keep up the great work. I look forward to hearing more!
You’ve turned me into an insufferable colleague
This podcast is officially the best tool in my arsenal of medical practice; it hurts my heart that I didn’t discover you until 2019. My supervising MD rolls his eyes every time we get a complex patient and I’m all eager-beaver to rattle off 17 clinical pearls about the patient’s disease process because I *just* listened to an ep about it.
I’m a PA working on-site at multiple SNF/LTCFs, so we get to continue management of every medical condition that’s ever existed once your patients are discharged from the hospital. (I even have a patient with Lemiere’s syndrome!) I was underwater for months trying to relearn IM after a decade in PM&R until I found your podcast. Thank you and never stop doing what you’re doing.
Love this show!
I needed a podcast to listen to that is informative and captured my attention. This definitely takes the cake! I especially like the case studies they do.

This is such a great podcast!! It's so informative, and the three hosts make it so much fun to listen to. There's a wonderful balance of keeping it light and also keeping it informative. As a medical student, I appreciate how they start from the basics with each topic, which for me makes it very easy to follow. The experts they have give great insights on pertinent topics and always have nice clinical pearls. The show notes on their website are also nice to review before and/or after listening to an episode. All of this is definitely helping me prepare for residency. Keep up the great work!!
I know this podcast runs a bit longer than some other Medicine audio shows, but it’s truly worth it. As someone who listens to a lot of podcasts I especially appreciate the high production values. The more I delve in to the archives the more impressed I get. The show notes are quite detailed and very very helpful.

BEST Podcast that I listen to. I am a trail running IM/Hospitalist - friends chastise me for using headphones while running instead of "being mindful" and enjoying nature. My exception is Curbsiders - I LOVE running and listening to it. I frequently burst out laughing ( to the alarm of other hikers/runners that may be nearby, esp. if I try to explain to them how hilarious this lecture on TTP or Hepatic cirrhosis is....). I sometimes have to do several laps back in the parking lot to finish my Curbsiders episode ( the ones > 1 hr). My only problem now is that I run on a Mtn Trail known for its' Mountain Lion population - it is approx. 10 miles, as the crow flies, S of the trail where a guy killed a mtn Lion who attacked him while running last week.Hmmm. Guess I'll run w/ headphones less often, but can't give up Curbsiders...
The best 👍🏼
Thank you. Entertaining and informative.
A great way to learn and stay up to date.
Informative, funny, and the only medical podcast I’ve found so far that I don’t fall asleep too. Thanks for spreading the knowledge!
Finally a podcast that loves medicine as much as they love being human beings! Not afraid to be themselves
I love this
Kinda dorky. Kinda serious. Kinda fun.
I’m finding the info to be relevant and helpful. Too often we generalists get a little creaky on some details and dislike asking questions of our specialty friends. I’ve listened to Two episodes so far and in both cases my long burning questions were clarified.
Love this podcast

Excellent podcast. Concise, evidence-based talks relevant to practice.
Best Medical Podcast
This is absolutely the best medical podcast out there. I am 56 year old Family Doc and am learning things every time I listen. These docs are making me a better provider. Well done Curbsiders!
Learning that’s entertaining
Just found this podcast while looking for a way to study passively for my IM recert exam. Reminds me of the camaraderie of residency and fellowship. Thanks for putting together such a great show. I can’t wait to binge listen to all the old episodes and grow my brain.
I just survived my first year of being a nurse practitioner working as a hospitalist. From the start, I knew I must face a steep learning curve. Simply listening to this podcast, I have been learning a tremendous amount of good practical knowledge.
It has also helped me to build a good working relationship with physicians. As a newly graduated nurse practitioner, many experienced doctors were initially intimidating. But after I started listening a few episodes from this podcast, I found it as a great icebreaker saying “So, Dr. ___, I just heard it on the way to work this morning that ____. I am interested in your opinion.” Not only have I found this helpful to get to know them better, but I also have found that those great doctors are great teachers. I learn so much from them on every day.
The Cirbsiders has offered me more opportunities to learn!
Thank you to all the supporters, contributors & content creators of the Curbsiders. This group makes learning about health interesting and memorable. I really appreciate the hard work you all do and how welcoming you are to anyone with the desire to learn.
I stumbled upon your podcast recently and just listened to the perioperative medicine podcast. Well done! This was particularly helpful to me as a family nurse practitioner who works in general cardiology and sees numerous consults such as these each week.
Highly recommend! I hope to learn more from you with the others.
Great IM podcast - give it a listen
No more self promotion
I really enjoy the Curbsiders
1. Experts they Interview have excellent credentials
2. The Kashlak Memorial hospital trope is great as it allows for a non judgmental approach to patient management. No concerns about ‘the OSH did what!?’
3. The hosts are delightfully self aware with their humor, a very internist characteristic
4. You get CME/MOC for it!!!
A must listen for all healthcare providers!
Love the podcast and the entire team! The information is always presented in a clear and organized manner which makes it very easy to follow especially for a student like myself. The topics and guests are always on point. This is the highlight of my week and I often go back to older episodes while studying to supplement my knowledge. Thank you for this awesome podcast! Keep it up!
Good for an IM intern
I’m halfway through intern year and just discovered this podcast. Really enjoyable to listen to and doesn’t leave me feeling cognitively drained. They cover important clinical AND non-clinical topics.
Deep knowledge and self-deprecating humor, the internist’s dream.
High-quality guest speakers, varied topics, enthusiastic hosts and excellent content. Definitely my favorite medical podcast and rapidly becoming a go-to receptacle of knowledge. I increasingly find myself using the show notes for resources to prep for journal clubs, teaching key points on rounds and beyond. Well done to all involved and to ACP for expanding their platform.
Best Medical Podcast I've Found
I listen to this all the time on my long commutes back and forth to clinical. The knowledge base is incredible and I love the diagnostic exercises the show has incorperated... listen to the intro you animals.
I used something I learned from the show to win an argument with my professor who then raised my grade to an A.
Always fun, informative listening
I always feel more equipped to tackle a clinical problem after hearing the Curbsiders take. High-yield pearls in an engaging format. Keep up the good work!
Great case studies
I really like the recent diagnostic challenges from the Human Diagnosis Project... would love to see more of these!
Not many opportunities to listen to a podcast driving to work, get smarter, open up your computer and test what you’ve learned for CME sand MOC! Great job by ACP bringing this into their umbrella.
Best medical podcast. Highly informative and the hosts make this show very entertaining too.
Inception of Medical Podcasts
I’ve been listening to podcasts for several years now but this is the first medical podcast that is not only informative but engaging. Wish I had known about it earlier on in medical school and recommend to anybody at any point in their training.
One warning though, you will get other great podcast recommendations from Curbsiders and those will recommended other podcasts. There’s something very inception like about it all.
Great podcast for a busy resident trying to improve my own practice and be a better teacher! Thank you!
