Get to know the nurses
It’s important for physicians to treat nurses with respect. I’m glad there are people talking about this issue, especially at the med student level.
Just a genuinely enjoyable show. Dave and all co-hosts are so down to earth and it's easy to see that they're truly passionate about what they do. They inspire me to work hard and one day I will see myself in medicine, too!
This podcast is just wonderful. Funny, pragmatic and extremely insightful. As someone who is about to start their journey to med school this podcast has been a great source of encouragement and has boosted my confidence in my decision. Thank you Short Coats!
Fun, usually informative, occasional unilateral identity politics
Mostly enjoyable content with wide variety. Formal interviews, candid discussion and hilarious games. Hosts usually stick to medical school topics but sometimes dive into pseudo-related political issues without any conservative perspectives to spark productive civil discourse. If you really enjoy politically progressive positive feedback loops you’ll absolutely love these segments of the show. Regardless, I listen every week.
Not just for Med Students
I’m not a med student. Or even a student. But there is still a lot of interesting conversation and ideas about the practice of medicine that I find really relevant to all people!
Fun to listen to, engaging conversations (with political bias), and if you write in, you are very likely to get on the show.
Insightful and entertaining
I’m a new listener to this podcast but so far, it’s great. I really appreciate the hosts giving listeners the inside scoop of medschool. Plus, it’s hilarious too. :-)
Literally the best
I found this podcast just a few short months ago and it has for real changed my life. My work commute is better, I have an even bigger appreciation for physicians and medical students and the effort they go through to better our health and the healthcare system, and I have learned so many new and interesting health related things because of this podcast. I’ve always dreamed of being a physician but was on the fence if I had what it took to go through all the school and training. This podcast not only is a great guide for anyone looking to pursue medicine but also a great motivator for those, like me, who were scared or nervous they weren’t good enough. Thank you short coats and Dave for the phenomenal podcast!
A blessing for any premed and medical students
It's such a breath of fresh air to hear about medical school and residency in a transparent light
Way to go!!
The best podcast about medical school!
Unlike most medical podcasts, these nerds are entertaining! I look forward to every Thursday’s release of a new episode. Keep it up Dave and crew
While I am in the process of changing careers, taking my pre-med courses, and assuring medical school is right for me, the Short Coat Podcast has been my go to resource for information gathering, understanding what life might be like medical student, and staying up to date on recent events in health care!
Would Definitely Recommend!
I find myself refreshing my podcast app every Thursday to listen to the new episode. I love the mix of serious topics, listener questions, and fun games that Dave and the Short Coats present! Would definitely recommend to anyone considering going into medicine!
5-Star Host, 5-Star Podcast
I’m an ICU nurse who needed something light to listen to on my bike rides to work. Although this isn’t the most informative medical podcast out there, it’s funny, lighthearted with a loveable host that’s incredibly easy to listen to. This podcast is definitely a mood booster. Keep up the good work!
Witty, Fun, Informative, and Authentic!
I have been listening to this podcast for two years, and every week these amazing podcasters remind me of the beauty and humanity of medicine! It is real, and the hosts are not afraid to speak their views and truths on tough topics, which I love! Not only do they discuss hard topics, but they do it with the right amount of humor (in a way that leaves you laughing as you drive down the road or smiling while you jog that last long lap). They are inspiring, and I can’t thank them enough for all the amazing advice they give. Keep being awesome Short Coats!
This podcast is always a highlight in my day. The perfect, light hearted mix of informative and fun. May or may not get weird stares when getting caught laughing out loud while listening at the gym.
“There is more pleasure in giving than in receiving” They say this pertains to both medicine.... and advice. I say why not enjoy both? I had the pleasure of receiving the advice of the podcast every week for several months before I started at Carver. And then I got the pleasure to join the flip side and be on the podcast a couple of weeks ago. Listen to this podcast for some advice, current medical news and a lot of good laughs! It’s all been pretty neat.
This is a wonderful podcast for medical students and pre-meds alike!
Informational and Fun at the same time!
This is a good way to get an eye into what it looks like to be a medical student in all facets: curriculum, methods for success, how to stay sane, ethical situations in the news, etc. They give good advice in a nonjudgmental manner!
Interested in medicine? Why haven't you subscribed already?
Dave and his knowledgeable and relatable crew of medical students will make your week! As a pre-health student, this hilarious and informative podcast motivates me to keep pursuing this medical education journey. I learn something new with every episode. After listening to this podcast for over a year, every episode feels like I'm hanging out with friends. BONUS: they eat cat food! (You must listen to find out how.)
Short coat is great!
I find this podcast validating, since the journey to medical school seems challenging to me. These people have helped me to relax and realize that many other premeds are in the same place as I am. This podcast is also funny and inspiring. Keep up the great work!
Connoisseur of all Music
Been listening for a few years now and find every podcast wonderful from all the topic areas you all bring up within the field of medicine. Keep up the good work!
Engaging & fun!
I love listening to your podcasts on my runs while I train for my marathon. People probably think I’m nuts as they drive/walk by because I’m literally smiling and laughing aloud at your jokes and dynamic witty banter. Thanks for making my long runs bearable!
I am not a Med student but I am the teacher of many students who are entering or have entered the medical field. I find this podcast interesting and informative. I plan so share a few episodes with particular students on topics related to medical paths they are looking to enter. Especially the episode where you answer the question about routines during first year and about the document of positives/negatives during Med school.
Favorite medical information resource!
I just recently discovered the podcast and instantly got hooked. I listen to it during my commute to work and when I go on long distance runs. As a pre-med, it gives me great insight into medical school while maintaining a very welcoming and relaxed feel; which makes it easy and rewarding to listen to. I look forward to catching up on all of the episodes I haven’t listened to yet!
So relevant, enriching and insightful!
Upcoming M1 here! After listening to different podcasts, I’ve found this is the one that resonates with me most. I was looking for something that would offer great advice for student-physicians, dive into the healthcare system and global issues, and share knowledge/broaden my perspective on all topics related to medicine & health care. Short Coat does all of this and on top of that, the hosts always keep the mood light and know how to make you laugh. I’ll definitely be listening to SCP throughout my medical school journey and beyond. Highly recommend =)
I just started listening to this podcast less than 24 hours ago and you guys had me dying of laughter! On top of making me laugh you guys are very informative, I enjoy every minute of this podcast. Keep up the great work!
Great podcast for med/premed students out there
LOVE listening to this podcast. It’s my go to for the drive to and from work. The insight is always awesome! Thanks all! Thanks Dave!
Great informative, fun podcast!
Rising M2 here! This podcast is fun and entertaining but still extremely informative for pre-meds and beyond. Got into the habit of listening right before my exams last year and got excellent scores every time, just sayin’...
Great medical podcast
One of my favorite podcasts. The topics discussed are always intriguing. The show is also pretty hilarious, I’m often smiling and chuckling as I listen on my drive to work.
Most Entertaining Medical Podcast Out There
I was looking for a podcast to listen to on my way to class, and a google search for good medical podcasts steered me here. I’ve been hooked since the first episode! Dave does a great job organizing the show and charismatically cultivating discussion, and all of the co-hosts come across as both knowledgeable about the topic at hand while also having fun. The Short Coat Podcast finds an excellent balance between entertaining and informative about medical news, and as a clinical lab science student I always find it interesting to hear the perspectives of other medical professional students.
Overall I would absolutely recommend the Short Coat podcast to anybody working as or interested in working as a health professional, or even anybody who just wants to listen to some fun, informative banter.
We’re All in This Together
I found this podcast on SDN while trying to quell some fears around starting medical school this fall, and it’s been exactly what I needed! Dave & the students behind this show are all really great, and I appreciate that their approach is so encouraging and positive. I’d definitely recommend this to other pre-med & med students with questions, worries, or who just want to feel a part of the conversation.
Great podcast, very informative and hilarious! I look forward to downloading the new episode every Thursday!
This podcast catches you premed and medical students, who often fall between the cracks of medical education. I mean this as many podcasts are in depth research reviews or pearls for practicing clinicians. This podcast is for the student, who has love for medicine
but a long way to go. The students are often witty and intelligent and human!! I would love to hear from more minority medical students! As a Latino pursuing this journey, it would be nice to feel represented. This is what medical students need. Keep doing the going work, adelante!
Hilarious, informative, and holistic
I’ve really enjoyed listening to the SCP during the lead-up to med school apps this spring/summer. The discussions are up to date, conscientious, and really insightful-things that I’ve really appreciated in my preparation. Please keep up the good work and continue striving to incorporate the upcoming (hopeful) generations!
Most Entertaining Medical Podcast
I have always loved the short coat podcast! I literally laugh out loud in the gym when I am listening to it and people look at me like I’m crazy. I love Dave and all of the medical students. Dave and the cohosts have helped me realize that in medical school I will still be able to have a life, which is reassuring! Best medical podcast around that I look forward to every Thursday!
(Future) Doctor Recommended
Started this podcast 2.5 years ago while preparing for my MCAT. It's been a fantastic journey this whole time and actually seeing where the magic happens was a highlight of the application process. I’ve had a wonderful M1 year and this podcast has been such a motivator to wake up and go to lectures. Look forward to continuing to have this podcast by my side as I continue my life in medicine.
Love this podcast and always look forward to new ones!
Light at the end of the tunnel
Hey guys, great job. I am a grad student applying to Med school this upcoming rotation, and you guys truly give me hope. I have delayed this process for a while but you guys have made me not feel scared to try. I am going to be applying to Carver because you guys are so awesome and talk so highly of the institution. Keep it up and who knows, maybe I’ll be joining you guys soon!
One of my favorite podcasts! I really enjoy listening to the different topics you guys discuss and honestly I always learn something new!
Definitely recommend it to all premeds and medical students!
Thank you for what you do!
SUPER helpful podcast for pre-meds, med students, or anyone who is interested in medicine!
I am a pre-med student and love listening to this podcast to get a feel of what my future looks like. It is not only helpful but funny and entertaining. I always listen on my way to and from work. Thanks Dave and med students for putting on such a great show.
Listen to many podcasts and enjoy this one. You Need to cut out the guessing game for topics, all of you should understand and how valuable time is.
Subscribed on a whim, really glad I did
JimBob the Slimbob
I LOVE this podcast! This podcast has been a great resource in terms of providing me with a more personal and grounded view of life as a medical student.
Listening to the podcast actually got me interested in applying to carver, for the admittedly shallow reason of wanting to someday be on the podcast. Now that I'm actually, seriously looking for schools though I obviously have different search criteria (for example I changed my mind about when I saw that out of state tuition cost tbh). Still, I really love this podcast and I will continue listening for years to come (hopefully in med school).
My sister told me about this podcast and I have been listening ever since. Dave and his guests bring a great variety of information, varied opinions, and silliness into every episode! Thanks, Dave!
Phenomenal Advice for Pre-meds!
This podcast tells it like it is straight from medical students. They give the good, bad, and the ugly about what it's like to be a medical student. I love tuning in every week, as it re-confirms my desire to want to go to medical school someday!
Entertaining, informative, solid!
Love this podcast! Real people having casual yet informed conversations about healthcare and medical school, and then having a bit of fun towards the end. I just like listening to their banter even if it’s not related to medicine...Is that weird? And plus the host has a voice for radio which my auditory senses greatly appreciate. He’s like the cytoplasm to this cellular enterprise. Great work guys!
Great podcast for medical students and those interested in a professional healthcare career
Dave is exremely entertaining and balances seriousness and goofiness really well in these insightful pods. Recommend!
New favorite podcast
This podcast is the perfect intersection between insight, information, encouragement, and hilarity. Keep it coming!
Love the Short Coat Podcast!
I LOVE the show and I recommend it to all my premed friends. It's just the perfect mix of humor with intellectual discussion. It's honest. It's raw. And it's perfect for pre meds, medical students, and even physicians.
I've listened to every episode
Such a great podcast for pre-meds and medical students alike. I've had a lot of free time before starting medical school and I enjoyed every episode and got a great insight into what lies ahead in my medical career.
