Tall Testosterone Tales for the Toxic testicle Troops


A silly documentary about the decline of men.

  • Dave has an alternative idea for composing residency personal statements.

Urology is about more than penises and prostates, ft. Men’s Health Doc Amy Pearlman, MD


Serving Your Patients Shouldn’t Just Happen in the Office


  • Urologist Amy Pearlman has built her practice upon the opportunities offered by YouTube, Twitter, and Tik Tok.
  • The one question no one asks themselves that can help you decide on your future specialty: what can’t you live without?
  • Medical school does not teach you how to be a doctor. That’s what residency and fellowships are for.

Dr. Amy Pearlman is a urologist who operates a men’s health clinic at the University of Iowa. Co-hosts AJ Chowdhury (M1) and Aline Sandouk (MD/PhD) suggested her as a guest on the show, and boy is he glad he listened. Dr. Pearlman has so much to offer students on everything from offering patients value before they even arrive for their in-office visit, picking a specialty, and why men need a provider that focuses on their needs just as women do.

AJ and Aline join M3 Mason LaMarche and M4 Zach Tully for a fantastic conversation with Dr. Pearlman that could change the way you think about your future medical career.

Also, Dave keeps reading about a humanity-extinguishing sperm count “crisis.” But The New York Times reports on new research that suggests the crisis is non-existent.
