Best Absite Review and Surgical Podcast

by Gen Surg R3 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I first started listenting to this podcast as an intern and learned so many little tidbits that were useful on the wards. As the ABSITE review episodes came out, I quickly incorporated those into my yearly studying. I attribute a large part of my high absite scores to these reviews. You guys deserve a medal for your work.

Amazing guests, interviewer ehh...

by Isaballlls on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I listened to the first episode, the surgeon was very comprehensive answering each question in which the interviewer responded with “um great so...,” or “uhm that’s awesome so...”. Terrible and awkward!

First year gen surg resident here! I’m going through the absite review and it’s fantastic- great summary podcasts of critical info and awesome q&a portions!

Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast is nothing short of incredible. As a surgical resident, this should be required curriculm.. but even as a med student or patient each podcast is incredily informative, interesting and enaging. I think my entire program is using their lectures to prepare for ABSITE and/or boards. I only wish I had found it sooner. PLEASE NEVER STOP!

Very informative podcast. The absite reviews helped me pass my boards! I also love the new journal clubs.

You guys are the real MVPs!!!

God bless you guys! The content, the delivery, the organization... I just discovered the podcast and have been binging for the last 5 days when I’m burnt out from studying for Step 2. It’s still hard to believe that I’ve come across such a goldmine! You guys will have a hand in any life I save in the future.


by NicksOtherName on
Rating: ★★★★★

This is simply the best, most compact and most salient resource for students and surgical trainees. The contributors clearly devote more time and energy toward preparation for each episode than do many journal podcasts. The result is, quite simply, a quality product that is invaluable to this community. I commend also the surgical programs that support this effort and lend it their talent - these are the future leaders of training in our field.

Great Podcast!!!

I’m a recent graduate from a prestigious institution and working in a semi academic community position without all the accoutrements of a big academic center and really enjoy your podcast to supplement my need and desire for academia.

Can't recommend this highly enough!

An incredible resource for residents

by ctagz1010 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I am a current 5th year resident and I love this podcast. It provides extremely useful reviews for the written and oral boards. I have recommended it to all my fellow residents. The discussions hit on all the most high yield topics. The discussions are rapid yet also thorough. The best way to study for these exams is to use multiple modalities. I have no doubt that scores on these exams will improve because of this podcast. The creators of the podcast are innovators and deserve a lot of credit.

Definitly solid

I'm an MS4 applying General Surgery. I discovered BKA towards the end of my 3rd year and love it. I am spamming the episodes while on the interview trail. The programing helps me to feel connected to current issues in the surgical community and is a great way to cover material from leaders in the field! Thank you for the great work guys!

Studying for oral exams and found this very helpful. The mock oral scenarios were great. Hearing how experts handle tough scenarios or even standard scenarios is also great review. Highlights from conferences were great too. Love Scott Steele's sign off of "Dominate the Day." Keep it coming!

Great for residents of all levels.

I'm an R1 and I haven't found any audio study form since Goljan for step 1 (which is amazing and I listened to 3x) definitely going to be listening to these more than once. They are very good, and easy to listen to. Can't wait for next weeks podcast! Thanks so much @momoMD on twitter

I finished my residency 15 years ago and I've been trying to find a podcast to refresh my basic surgical knowledge. I think I finally found one. I've been listening to this for the past 6 months. It is great! It not only provides basic surgical knowledge in a succinct format, it also ties it into every day surgical practice. Keep up the good work!

I was looking for something I could listen to on the drive to work or at the gym. So glad I finally found this Podcast. Very well-produced. Covers topics geared towards my interests as a resident. Love the subsections that help break up the format--compliments my ever-shrinking attentions span. This is the first podcast I recommend to my fellow residents.

What a wonderful contribution to surgical education. I was very fortunate to stumble upon this podcast. Every episode is topical and engaging. Keep up the great work!

Interesting and informative

by Hernia patient on
Rating: ★★★★★

I recently received a second hernia repair at the same site. Even though my surgeon was in a hurry during pre-op appts, the hernia podcast answered all my questions and then some. I recommend this podcast to any patient who wants detailed information about a procedure, even if embarrassed to ask their own surgeon about how it all happens.

Great Podcast

Excellent quality podcast. Informative and entertaining. Thank you.

A favorite; and I'm not in medicine!

by sabarjp on
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast is one of my favorite listens and I'm not in the medical field at all! The guest speakers are well spoken and very intelligent. Many of the episodes are tailored towards surgeons, but many others are accessible to an intelligent non professional as well.A good example is the episode on doctor burnout and complications, which clearly shows that yes, our doctors are human.Keep up the great work!
