Medgeeks' New Podcast Helps Medical Students and Practitioners Keep Pace With Health Care Advances

August 20, 2019( -
​Learn something new every day. It's good advice for anyone — but an absolute essential for medical practitioners and the incoming class of medical students around the country. That's where Medgeeks and its new podcasts come in. The podcasts bring listeners important medical updates affecting the practice of medicine, with a focus on primary care and internal medicine. It offers no-cost, on-demand podcasts, as well as a subscription-based podcast called In the Know .

And based on research from the National Institutes of Health , the service is a timely one. According to the group, in just a one-year period, nearly two million scientific research articles were published; and continuing medical advances have translated to more complexities in medical practices and the need for clinicians to have exponentially more medical knowledge and parallel familiarity with the continual introduction of new FDA-approved drugs.

The founder and team at Medgeeks know the struggle firsthand. The company was founded in 2013 by Andrew Reid, who previously worked as a physician assistant in family and OBGYN practices. It provides medical students, along with practicing physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and physicians a ready source for medical content and motivational tips. His team includes physicians, physician assistants, EMTs, medical school faculty, and hospital and medical technology professionals. Their specialties include everything from interventional radiology to concussion treatment to orthopedics to sports medicine to cardiology to internal medicine and more.

'We have all experienced the pressures and time demands of keeping up with our medical knowledge and expertise from med school, to studying for the boards, to patient care and clinical practice,' said Reid. 'I really felt it was my calling to lend a hand to health care providers, and our podcasts are the natural extension of what we already are doing to help.' 

Medgeeks offers a library of free podcasts that provide real-life patient scenarios for certain conditions and then goes into the symptoms, complications, diagnosis, treatment and patient outcomes. The podcasts are engaging, humorous at times, clearly presented, and full of expert information on important practice-changing medical updates gleaned from research and review of credible medical journals and publications and patient interactions. Guest experts are featured on some shows to provide unique insights and advice on the topic at hand, and listeners can send in questions for a response. The podcasts are hosted by Joe Rad , PA-C, of Medgeeks, who is a practicing physician assistant in pulmonary/critical care and sleep medicine who also work in hematology and oncology. In the Know is a subscription-based monthly podcast that contains a deeper dive into the same type of content and adds in comparisons between old and new guidelines, advice for practices, and review of recently published medical studies and how those will affect the way providers work. 

'People in the medical field are ridiculously busy and need to take advantage of every spare moment,' explained Reid. 'We deemed audio to be the best way to provide regular information to them to fit their hectic lives. With the podcast, they can easily listen on the way to work, at the gym, or while running errands.' 

Subscriptions to In the Know are $99 a year or $9.99 per month. To find out more about Medgeeks, its free podcasts and In the Know, go to ; and visit them on Instagram , YouTube and Facebook .
