The Top 8 Podcasts and Publications for Surgeons in 2022

By Tim Callahan21 Sep 2022

It can be difficult to find the time to sift through the latest research. That’s the beauty of podcasts. You can listen to episodes while driving, doing chores at home or during a break at the hospital. Plus, some podcasts even offer CME credits as well. Here’s an overview of some of the top publications and podcasts that can help keep you on top of what’s happening.

The Top 8 Podcasts and Publications for Surgeons in 2022

Podcast: JAMA Surgery Author Interviews

The Author Interviews podcast is exactly what it sounds like: JAMA editors interviewing authors of recent articles. Each episode is under 30 minutes and can be helpful for staying up-to-date on publications.

Podcast: The Operative Word from the American College of Surgeons

Like the JAMA surgery podcast, The Operative Word hosts speak with recently published authors in the Journal of American College of Surgeons. The podcast is hosted by Dr. Jamie Coleman and Dr. Dante Yeh.

Podcast: New England Journal of Medicine: Journal Watch

This podcast features a round up of the week’s latest medical stories. Each episode is no more than 30 minutes in length and features clinically-relevant interviews and listener comments. 

Podcast: Legends of Surgery

Unlike the other podcasts, Legends of Surgery is less clinical and more entertaining. It gives an “entertaining and informative approach to telling the stories of the people and events that make up the history of modern surgery.”

Journal: International Journal of Surgery

The journal is “dedicated to the global advancement of surgical research, education and clinical practice. It aims to promote continued developments in surgery through the sharing of knowledge, ideas and good practices across all surgical specialties. The IJS provides readers with critically peer-reviewed, carefully selected/edited and up to date [sic] publications about advances in the field of surgery that are relevant to them.”

Journal: Annals of Surgery

The Annals of Surgery is the most highly-referenced surgical journal around the world. “Advances in Surgical T​echnique" is a special section of the journal that offers “up-to-the-minute coverage of current clinical issues, and monthly review articles that cover the most current practice concerns.”

Podcast: Behind the Knife

Behind the Knife provides surgical education via podcasts. Its mission is to “revolutionize surgical education by creating timely, relevant, and engaging content delivered through an easily accessible multimodal educational platform that meets the needs of busy surgeons and modern trainees.” 

Behind the Knife also offers CMEs and, if you don’t feel like listening to content, you can read or watch on-demand content instead. 

Journal: The Journal of American Surgery

The Journal of American Surgery is an independent medical journal that serves as the official journal of several surgical societies. “In addition to publishing some of these societies' rigorously reviewed annual meeting papers, the AJS publishes free-standing, independent peer-reviewed articles. This provides for superior editorial content and balance. All articles are referenced in Medline and are thus part of an international referenced source of medicine and surgery.”
