Intelligence on the move

Physician poetry, podcasts, audiobooks. Short but sweet things that make us smarter.

Physicians’ time is limited. Most of us were avid readers when we were younger, but now long for the days when we could lounge around and binge-read our favorite novel, or spend all day on Sundays reading the New York Times. We are lucky these days if we can keep up with what is going on within our specialties, as many of us find our journals stacking up in the corner of our bathrooms. We will also let you know what’s trending for non-physicians (so that you will know what’s trending in the patient world).
