Incredible, entertaining and empowering!
This is a must listen to show if you’re thinking about becoming a surgeon, going into medicine in some capacity or just want to learn more about what the world of surgery looks like - from actual surgeons! All of the hosts do an incredible job bringing on guests in the field who cover a wide variety of topics that apply across the entire medical landscape - all while keeping the focus of surgery as the backdrop. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!
Amazing surgical resource
Annual ABSITE review is incredibly helpful, and such a nice break from staring at a computer screen! I listen on my way to/from work every day, making my commute a more efficient use of time.
The topics outside of ABSITE are also great tools for learning more about current issues in surgery as well as career development and hot topics at annual meetings. This is an invaluable resource- I would highly recommend to every surgical resident, fellow, and faculty invested in surgical eduction!
Great review for ABSITE and Qualifying Exam
This is a great review for not only the yearly ABSITE but don't forget to listen as a review for the GS QE in July this year! Will pass along this resource to many residents/Fellows.
Amazing podcasts, great ABSITE series, fascinating interviews with leaders in the field! Wish I had discovered this years ago!
Started listening to this podcast a few years ago end it continues to get better every year. I directly attribute some of my surgical knowledge retention to this podcast.
Best Absite Review and Surgical Podcast
Gen Surg R3
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...
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!
This is the best so far ! Must listen for both absite and mock orals
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!
AMAZING PODCAST FOR RESIDENTS AND BEYOND
Johnny 5 spot
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.
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.
Best surgical podcast!
Accurate, to the point.
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!
Thorough and easy to listen to! So much bang for your buck which is crucial given how little time we all have each day!
Best surgery podcast for residents
👍 keep it up
Happy surgery person.
The time and effort that is put into building a great show with inspiring and engaging topics shows. Thanks for being THE surgery podcast!
Excellent! Will certainly be a review I reference not only for ABSITE but throughout my year-long rotations. It’s clear the effort you guys put into this, I’m sure will be a staple for residents for years to come. Let’s dominate!
Great ABSITE reviews
Thanks for all the hard work
Thanks for hard work. This is the best surgery podcast I’ve ever listened to. Please keep up the good work.
You guys are awesome
Literally love these podcasts!!
An incredible resource for residents
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.
Great podcast for anyone serious about surgery. I listen while driving on a regular basis and love it. Their ABSITE review sessions are on point, concise, and an amazing study adjunct. Keep up the strong work!
love the absite reviews!
Love the Absite reviews! keep them coming
gen surg resident
I have learned an incredible amount from this podcast and value the succinct presentation of clinically relevant techniques, debates and updates from the experts. Many of the residents have started to listen to this. Please continue your excellent work!!
one of a kind podcast. great oral and absite review.
Great podcast for surgical residents. Great topics. Great content. Great discussions. Highly recommend.
Great podcast even for medical students going into the surgical field. Offers a broad scope of both diagnostic and therapeutic options, while also combining high yield absite facts with newly published research. Highly recommended to friends and colleagues pursuing general surgery.
Accidentally became a surgeon!
I accidentally started listening to this podcast last year when searching for topics related to ab workouts. Now I am a board-certified general surgeon with a thriving practice and I owe it all to you. Thanks!
Really enjoy this podcast and find the ABSITE reviews especially helpful. Thanks for putting it on!
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!

Your episodes are such a joy to listen to and I hope you keep up this wonderful work! All the best and thank you for all you do!
recently discovered. Great for my drive to/from work

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.
Been listening since the beginning. Super appreciative of the absite review I got three question from my drive into work on the review. Thanks to Dr. Martin too, he was super tuned in to what they were gonna ask this year!
Great source for surgery residents
This is a great source for general surgery residents. Thanks for putting this on. Also, the absite review is fantastic.
Fun, Informative, Excellent Podcast
The lecture series for Absite has been fantastic. I was introduced to the podcast during this time period. Looking forward to going through older episodes once absite is over.
Great podcast, always learn something.
Great ABSITE reviews

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
Keep up the good work!
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!
General Surgery Resident
Love this podcast! Perfect for the drive to and from work. I try and look for topic we're discussing that week to help with extra prep. Recommend it to all my co-residents, often.

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.
you have supplanted audio dugest surgery for me. I like to get to know these surgical experts and what they have to say.
Great podcast well done amazing guest. Listen to every episode
Would highly recommend
This is a fantastic resource for medical students interested in general surgery and general surgery residents. Keep up the good work. I love it!
