Pomegranate Health

CAREER_IND_BLACK (002) - squarePomegranate Health is a continuing professional development podcast to inspire excellence in a physician’s practice. Every month we present ​a story about clinical decision-making, physician wellbeing or socio-ethical challenges in medicine.

Episodes are developed with guidance from Fellows and other experts. Member input is also welcome—​discuss any episode in the Comments section ​or send your feedback to pomcast@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.
