Radio Rounds explores the qualities of humanism in medicine through different perspectives — those of world-renowned physicians, authors, students, patients and health care leaders. In short, Radio Rounds tells today’s stories in medicine, through the lens of tomorrow’s doctors.More information at www.radiorounds.org
