HCPLive Presents the DocTalk Podcast

The DocTalk Podcast, a weekly conversation with leaders and experts in medicine, will launch with 3 new episodes on September 9.

As health care continues to evolve, the avenues through which physicians, clinicians, and healthcare providers receive their news and information.

That idea is the driving force behind our newest project — the DocTalk Podcast. 



Sharing its name with our weekly tweetchat series #DocTalk, the podcast is our latest effort to engage our readers and deliver medical news with a clinical impact to our loyal audience. Every Monday, you can expect to find a new episode where our editors are joined by experts from institutions and hospitals form around the world.

Every episode will have a different topic — ranging from recent studies to hot topics in medicine. You can even expect a few editions from different locations.

While our regularly scheduled podcasts will debut every Monday, our team will also bring you special episodes with lead investigators and key opinion leaders from the floor of the most popular conferences throughout the year. 



When we announced our transition to HCPLive®, we made a commitment to evolving and bringing you quality content in a variety of mediums and the DocTalk Podcast is just the first step in our effort to bring you the best news in the most convenient ways possible.

Starting this upcoming Monday, September 9, the series will be launched. To celebrate the launch, we will be releasing the first 3 episodes at once. That Monday, you can listen along as we discuss the following topics:

  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement with Tsuyoshi Kaneko, MD, cardiac surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and assistant professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School, and Sameer Hirji, MD, surgical resident at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
  • Cardiovascular Polypill with Dhruv Kazi, MD, member of the Faculty of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and associate director of the Cardiac Critical Care Unit and of the Smith Center for Outcomes Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
  • Reading 12-Lead ECGs and Implementing AI into Practice with Suraj Kapa, MD, cardiac electrophysiologist and director of visiting professorships for the Department of Cardiology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

While our inaugural episodes may be cardiology related, our team will be bringing you perspective across a variety of specialties — for week 2, you can expect to hear perspective from Al Rizzo, MD, FACP, Chief Medical officer of the American Lung Association.

While we continue to transition into HCPLive the goal of providing clinical news for connected physicians and health care professionals remains the same. We hope you enjoy our latest effort and would love to hear your input.
