There are a lot of specialties (120+) to choose from in a medical career and very little time to explore them all. Complicating the problem is the fact that, at times, mentorship can be hard to come by in medical school which makes many med students feel as though they have to make the decision on their own. The purpose of the TUMS podcast is to help med students learn the talking points of all the specialties and to empower them to start exploring their career options early and on their own.

To accomplish this, the host of the podcast, Ian Drummond, a 4th year medical student at Case Western Reserve University, decided to conduct interviews with at least one physician from each of the 120+ specialties and sub-specialties listed on the AAMC's Careers in Medicine website and to record these conversations as a means of scaling the mentorship of these physicians so that all medical students struggling with career planning could benefit from their advice.
