Episode 1 of the Podcast is up!

by Bob Stuntz

Hey all, 

I’m happy to say I’m posting the first episode of the podcast.  It’s a simple intro.  I go through tips for the new interns to make yourselves look like stars and avoid common resident pitfalls.  For the graduates, I have a quick blurb on some pearls for your first year as an attending.  Finally, to get everyone on the same level to be able to have the discussion we will have about many different topics, I talk about sensitivity and specificity, PPV and NPV, and give an intro to clinical decision rules.  You can find it here:

The show notes can be found by clicking the link to the right for show notes.  I posted them in PDF and Word format.  If anyone really needs Pages, just ask.  

Let me know if there are issues with it.  This was the basic intro, getting everyone on the same page.  We have some cool ideas coming up.  The goal is to do it at a minimum once a month, with likely a few more episodes than that.  We even have some ideas for a few video podcasts.  

As always, give me feedback.  If you have ideas or things you want to see me address, let me know.  I am going to try to get it on iTunes, so I’ll let you know how that goes.
