We would like to praise the recent article by Kapoor et al,1 a highly topical piece on medical education. The future of medical education is of utmost importance in creating what the General Medical Council describes as the “Doctors of Tomorrow”.  Medical podcasts are becoming a more prominent avenue of learning in our evolving medical curricula, promoting engagement and multiple learning styles. The traditional lecturebased style of teaching seems to be declining, with multidisciplinary, interactive, and scenario/problem-based learning becoming more common.2 Kapoor et al1 raise awareness of learning at medical school, which can be extended to reflect the increasing implementation of technology in teaching. This has changed the way we learn, from students in early education, to later in the medical profession.3
