Pomegranate Health is a continuing professional development (CPD) podcast designed to inspire excellence in a physician’s practice. Once a month, we present stories on clinical decision-making, physician wellbeing and socio-ethical challenges in medicine. Episodes are developed with guidance and editorial oversight from Fellows of the RACP and other experts. Member input is also welcome—feel free to continue the discussion on any episode in the Comments section. You can send ideas for future stories to pomcast@racp.edu.au

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. A symbol of healing, the pomegranate sits at the heart of the RACP crest and is the official fruit of the College.
