Dermatology and Orthopedics podcasts

The Dermatology Weekly Podcast is a podcast the presents the latest research and news in dermatology weekly. The podcasts are of managable file size,  2 to 8 MB, and each podcast lasts between five to eight minutes. You can download the podcasts directly from their website or you can subscribe through their RSS feed. You can use Apple's iTunes or Juice as your podcast client. Both are free to download and are available for the Mac and Windows platform.

I've also scouted for podcasts in Orthopedics and came upon the University of Washington Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine podcast and the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Orthopedic Tests and Procedures podcast.

The UW Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine podcast is actually a video podcast which means that not only can you listen to the host and guests of the show, you can see them, too. The problem with a video podcast is that it's a much bigger file size so downloading them will take quite some time unless you have fast internet connection. The video podcast episodes have topics that covers the different areas of the body, like the shoulder, spine, knees and feet, and it also covers the diseases affecting these parts as well as the latest in treatment or surgery. The podcasts also have an RSS feed you can subscribe to. There are at least 25 video podcasts available to download for free.

I only have the feed for the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Orthopedic Tests and Procedures podcast. What the podcasts deals with are the common tests procedures done in orthopedics. Topics range from muscle biopsy to MRI to arthroscopy. The last update was on April 16, 2007.

That's about it for now coming from a long absence. I'm going to try to do periodic updates.
