Podcasts & Radio Segments

One of the avenues in which we communicate with our community is through radio and podcasts. We are excited to introduce our new podcast 'Mentors in Medicine'. The podcast is for anyone interested in medicine, especially young and aspiring doctors starting their careers. We ask our doctors what they wish they’d known before embarking on their medical careers, and also ask them to share an insight into some topics they’re particularly passionate about.

In addition to our podcast, each fortnight one of our San Specialists speaks on 2GB's Nights with John Stanley show. Each segment focuses on a new topic and always helps spread awareness of the services available at the San to those in our community. 

In celebration of International Women's Day, our very first guest was Associate Professor Payal Mukherjee who is a passionate champion of women in medicine.
