When most of us were going through medical training the word podcast had still yet to be uttered. A mash-up of broadcast and ipod, the word was first introduced in 2004. But by 2020 the podcast platform has developed into an essential tool for dissemination of information amongst humans. Now we can get information on any conceivable topic and it seems inevitable that this will transform all continuing education, including medical education. We know that in pediatrics we still need trusted resources and in that spirit, today we are excited to introduce you to a new podcast on the block that you need to be aware of, AAP’s new Pediatrics On Call Podcast, we’re going to talk to its co-hosts and discuss the future of CME and learning for pediatricians.
