American College of Physicians and The Curbsiders join forces for monthly podcast series

Philadelphia, May 21, 2018 – The American College of Physicians (ACP) and The Curbsiders, a popular podcast hosted by internists focusing on internal medicine-related topics, announced today that they are launching a co-branded monthly podcast series. The series will feature and cover a host of topics. ACP members who listen to the series can claim continuing medical education (CME) credits and maintenance of certification (MOC) points for each topic.

“We are excited to expand ACP’s educational offerings through this partnership with The Curbsiders,” said ACP President Dr. Ana María López. “ACP’s content and internal medicine expertise combined with the popularity of The Curbsiders’ engaging style offers internists a convenient option for continuing education.”

The first ACP-Curbsiders podcast focuses on ACP’s recent guidance statement on A1C targets for people with type 2 diabetes. Guidance statement co-author Dr. Devan Kansagara will discuss ACP’s recommendations with The Curbsiders team. After listening to the podcast, ACP members can login to ACP’s Online Learning Center to claim CME credit and MOC points.

“Whether it is a clinical recommendation, an advocacy issue, a practice management topic, or career advice, ACP has numerous resources and relevant experts for The Curbsiders to create podcasts to help internists with lifelong learning,” said internist Dr. Matthew Watto, Host of The Curbsiders.

The Curbsiders is downloaded over 150,000 times per month and is available on iTunes and other podcast platforms.
