Pomegranate Health


Pomegranate Health is an award-winning podcast about the culture of medicine. How do doctors make difficult clinical and ethical decisions? How can one communicate better with patients? How can health delivery be made more equitable and efficient? You’ll hear from clinicians, researchers and advocates. Every episode is developed with the guidance of RACP members, to inspire excellence in practice.

On each episode page there is a MyCPD link for Fellows to log credits for listening. Please also check out all the other Online Learning Resources @ RACP which include eLearning courses and recorded lectures. Why a pomegranate? The fruit has featured on the coat of arms of the Royal College of Physicians since 1546, and then that of RACP almost four hundred years later. The pomegranate is an ancient symbol of sanctity, fertility, and regeneration in all the major religions.
