Why listen to KeyLIME? Our best reasons come from the listeners themselves:
- From, Glenn D. Posner, MDCM, FRCSC, M.Ed.; University of Ottawa, Canada:
“I am an avid “reader” of audiobooks in the car, but between books I now catch up on the KeyLime podcasts. Jason, Linda and John do all the heavy lifting for us and review classic papers in Meded, papers that made noble attempts at rigorous methodology, and papers that should be in the armamentarium of every clinician educator. Most importantly, they explain why the paper is or isn’t essential reading and what impact it will have on their practices. I’m so happy that this resource exists – a condensed, high-yield journal club in my car!”
- From a UK Emergency Medicine Trainee
I just wanted to voice my appreciation for your KeyLIME podcasts. They are phenomenal!
I’ve taught for several years on undergraduate modules designed by others (thankfully with excellent feedback!). Over the last 6 months I’ve been getting more involved in course design which has fuelled my interest in MedEd theory – to the point where I’m now considering a Masters.
Because I’m new to a lot of the theory I find the podcasts a fantastic orientation to the field.
What I appreciate most is the fact that you draw on such vast experience:
-to know which articles to select
-to relate the article content back to previous work in the field
-the analyses that you offer of those papers
-the introduction to so many terms and theories within MedEd which direct my attention towards key work
-the mention of the relevant “MedEd rockstars” [aside from yourselves of course!] whose work I can then follow up.
Such a valuable resource. Fantastic job!
- From, Daniel Pepe, PGY-2 in Family Medicine at Western University, Canada:
” I’ve been a long time listener and wanted to say thanks first for creating KeyLIME it’s one of my favourite podcasts! It’s been really helpful in my training and fostering my interest in medical education research.
- From, Martin G. Tolsgaard, MD PhD, University of Copenhagen, Denmark:
“… I think you do an incredible job making new research interesting and accessible – keep up the good work!”
- From an MD at the Stanford University School of Medicine, USA:
” For years I have “been meaning to start listening to that KeyLIME podcast…” — and I finally did — now binging, not healthy, but very enjoyable. Simply wanted to say thanks.”
- From an MsC, RN PhD at the Hogeschool Utrecht , Utrech:
“Thank you for all the podcast which help me get to work so much faster (at least it feels that way).
- From an MD at the University of Cape Town, South Africa:
” Just wanted to drop a note to say thanks for the KeyLIME podcast. It is making a huge difference to my learning around meded issues. Wishing I had a longer commute to listen to more.”
- From an MD at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain:
” Keylime is the first podcast that has managed to get me hooked. It’s even got me exercising more, instead of taking the bus I walk the distance with Keylime playing! It’s proven useful in preparing presentations on #MedEd, adding some much needed evidence to my arguments for change and even in providing a very useful reference for a recent abstract submission. Looking forward to future podcasts!”
- From an MA at Ohio State University College of Medicine, USA:
“Folks appreciate what you are doing to make Med Ed Literature accessible technologically and cognitively!”
- From an employee at St Emlyn’s blog [http://stemlynsblog.org/] :
“I really do enjoy the KeyLIME blog. It’s getting better and better and it helps me penetrate the med-ed literature in a digestible format. I also love to listen in the car. Stay fabulous.”
- From Valerie Darkke, MSc; Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, Canada:
“Just wanted to drop a line and mention how much I enjoy listening to the podcasts. I like the format especially discussions of various methodologies. These podcasts help me to stay up to date with the current MedEd literature and a nice break from reading literature on screen/paper. Thanks so much!”
- From a PhD at the University of Michigan Medical School, United States
“Just wanted to give you anecdotal (N=1) evidence for the success of your podcasts. I just used as a citation one of the papers that you (Jason) selected (Hugget et al, on teaching awards). It was the perfect references for the spot and I wouldn’t have thought of it if I hadn’t just heard you three discuss it (I’m catching up on the backlog of earlier podcasts. I listen on my 45 min commute home. Keep up the great work!”
- From an MD at the University of Calgary, Canada
“I feel energized after catching up on some Key Lime episodes! I listened to several over my long drive home from vacation. The breadth of the topics in medical education is great and the spare keys I find very useful. No longer do I feel that I have to scramble to make it to MedEd journal club to stay in touch with the literature. Thank you for being a “broker” for me and my practice. Keep it up!”
- From an non-physician anonymous listener
” I have just recently started listening to the KeyLIME podcast. I quite enjoy listening to the wide rage of topics and papers discussed on this podcast. Please note I am not a physician but I am fascinated with medicine and all specialty’s surrounding it.
