In this short podcast, I discuss the new Integrated Pathophysiology Review for the USMLE Step 1/COMLEX 1 exams. The course is intended primarily for individuals taking Step 1/COMLEX 1. It will also be extremely helpful to individuals taking Step 2/3 (and COMLEX 2/3) who have very poor pathophysiology foundations from their basic science courses. The focus would be to help you understand pathophysiology in an integrated context that will help significantly with approaching a lot of the material commonly tested on these exams. The course will hold from 7-noon and 1-6 pm PST on 10/10. Email me via the website for details/registration.
In this short podcast, I discuss the upcoming 20 hr Step 2/3/Shelf exam course that takes place from 10/24-28 from 12-4 pm PST each day, the NBME test taking strategies course taking place from 5-7.30 pm PST on 10/21, and the 4 hr biostatistics boot camp taking place from 12-4 pm PST on 10/20, all via zoom. Email me via the website for details on registration.
In this podcast, I address 18 common errors that should be avoided in writing personal statements. Please note, all of these ideas are my opinions only and should not be taken as fact.
In this short podcast, I continue our rapid review series for these exams by discussing a few pathologies that people routinely get wrong. Many of these pathologies are also poorly understood by students so I spend time addressing them in detail.
In this short podcast, I continue our rapid review series by discussing a host of malignancies and pathologies that people commonly have issues with on the USMLE Step 2CK/3 exams.
Sarcoidosis is a common multi system pathology tested on all the USMLE/COMLEX exams. In this short podcast, I elaborate on what you need to know, describe pathophysiology, and make integrations with different body systems.
This podcast focuses on helping you understand some very challenging pulmonary concepts that many give up on. I utilize an extensive set of analogies to help you understand A-a gradients (more on this in the next podcast), diffusion/perfusion limitations, and other testy concepts.
Hemoglobin is associated with a subset of questions on all USMLE exams. If you want to truly understand Hb and make integrations with multiple disciplines, this is exactly what you need.
In this short podcast, I discuss a host of HY content classically tested on the exam. I emphasize some basic science details from Step 1 that creep up on Step 2/3.
In this podcast, I continue our pulmonary pathophysiology series with a discussion of a host of physiological relationships between pulmonary pressures.
