Hello friends đź‘‹

No journal club this week as, like many of you, we are prepping for the neonatology boards on March 29th. We are so happy to bring to you the second installment of our Giants of Neonatology series. This time we have the pleasure and the honor of interview the amazing Dr. Richard Polin. Dr. Polin is a one-of-a-kind educator and we were fortunate to pick his brain on education, mentorship, and clinical teaching. We hope you enjoy this episode! - Ben
