The Curbsiders Podcast
ACP has teamed up with The Curbsiders to conduct and broadcast a series of interviews with physicians on a variety of internal medicine-related topics in a "curbside" setting. The Curbsiders Podcast features three board-certified Internists as they interview the experts to provide listeners with clinical pearls and practice-changing knowledge. Join The Curbsiders as they serve up some triple-distilled knowledge (and maybe a little humor) for your continuing medical education, available exclusively to ACP members by completing the CME/MOC quiz.
