MedCast is a new podcast created by and for MedChi. The digital program was created with the vision to provide an outlet for MedChi physicians to come together to discuss a variety of topics on health care, while also featuring episodes that allow them to get to know their peers. As many organizations have faced a reduction in meetings through COVID-19, the existence of camaraderie needs to be defined differently. “The creation of this podcast was something that we were really excited to release in hopes of providing an outlet for our physicians to hear from their peers, talk about timely issues in medicine, and hopefully come together on a new platform that appeals to their hectic work schedules”, says Gene Ransom, MedChi CEO. MedCast is available on Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, and Spotify.
