About Us

 

THE Pediatric Urgent Care Podcast is a forum to discuss both medical and business topics in this growing and unique clinical environment catered to the acute needs of children with urgencies and emergencies.

 

In our Meet-the-Expert pods, we sit down with medical and surgical specialists as well as authorities in policy, patient engagement, technology, and health care delivery.

 

In our Concepts & Controversies pods, we delve deep to pick apart clinical conundrums and key issues by contrasting research evidence with pediatric acute care experience.
