Pomegranate Health

CAREER_IND_BLACK (002) - square

Pomegranate Health presents compelling stories about medicine and society: how doctors make difficult ethical and clinical decisions, how they can communicate with patients and how health delivery can be made more equitable. The podcast is produced by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians to inspire excellence in practice. You’ll hear from clinicians, researchers and advocates. Episodes are developed with the guidance of RACP members and listener input is always welcome. Discuss any episode in our comments section, or send your feedback to podcast@racp.edu.au

On each episode page there is a MyCPD link for Fellows to log credits for listening.

Why a pomegranate? The fruit has featured on the coat of arms of the Royal College of Physicians since 1546, on which the RACP was modelled almost four hundred years later. The pomegranate is an ancient symbol of sanctity, fertility, and regeneration in all the major religions.
