PRN: Your as Needed Dose of Medical Knowledge

PRN is hosted and produced by four VCOM medical students trying to learn how to be the best doctors they can be. They interview medical professionals at administrative and clinical levels to bring light to their day to day practices and struggles. The goal is to give everyone the opportunity to hear from medical professionals on topics that wouldn't normally be brought up in a classroom setting and spark more fluid conversation among medical students.
