43. Introducing CardioNerds Case Reports – with Dr. Julia Grapsa

JACC: Case Reports Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Julia Grapsa joins Cardionerds, Amit and Dan, to introduce a new episode series: CardioNerds Case Reports (#CNCR)! We discuss the value of learning through cases, podcasts and other innovations in education, importance of promoting wellness in medicine, the editorial review process for case reports, and being an editor-in-chief as a woman in medicine.

The CardioNerds Case Reports series will shine light on the hidden curriculum of medical storytelling. We learn together while discussing fascinating cases in this fun, engaging, and educational format. Each episode ends with an “Expert CardioNerd Perspectives & Review” (E-CPR) for a nuanced teaching from a content expert.

We truly believe that hearing about a patient is the singular theme that unifies everyone at every level, from the student to the professor emeritus.
