The BackTable Team
Made by physicians for physicians.
As the medical repertoire rapidly expands, it’s becoming more and more challenging for healthcare providers to stay up-to-date on the best way to approach the various facets of their practice. With the BackTable Podcast, we’re providing a new medium for practicing physicians to get up to speed on conditions, procedures, and practice building topics by listening to practical advice from their peers and the experts in their field.
