MedCast is a new podcast created by and for MedChi, The Maryland State Medical Society. The digital program was created with the vision to provide an outlet for MedChi physicians to come together to discuss a variety of topics on health care, while also featuring episodes that allow them to get to know their peers.
MedChi, a 501c6 nonprofit serving 10,000 physician members in Maryland, exists to advocate on behalf of physicians to create a healthier medical profession and community. As many organizations have faced a reduction in meetings through COVID-19, the existence of camaraderie needs to be defined differently. This podcast is just one tactic MedChi is utilizing to continue to bring physician members together in our state.
“The creation of this podcast was something that we were really excited to release in hopes of providing an outlet for our physicians to hear from their peers, talk about timely issues in medicine, and hopefully come together on a new platform that appeals to their hectic work schedules”, says Gene Ransom, MedChi CEO.
The first episode of MedCast features Loralie D. Ma, MD, a radiologist in Howard County and current president of MedChi’s Board. Dr Ma discusses her journey to becoming a radiologist, the issues facing physicians today, and how she helps her brain relax through walking. You can listen to it here.
MedCast is available on Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, and Spotify.
