Incredible, entertaining and empowering!
This is a must listen to show if you’re thinking about becoming a surgeon, going into medicine in some capacity or just want to learn more about what the world of surgery looks like – from actual surgeons! All of the hosts do an incredible job bringing on guests in the field who cover a wide variety of topics that apply across the entire medical landscape – all while keeping the focus of sugery as the backdrop. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

Amazing surgical resource
Annual ABSITE review is incredibly helpful, and such a nice break from staring at a computer screen! I listen on my way to/from work every day, making my commute a more efficient use of time. The topics outside of ABITE are also great tools for learning more about current issues in surgery as well as a career development and hot topics at annual meetings. This is an invaluable resource – I would highly recomment to every surgical resident, fellow, and faculty invested in surgical education!
