Divine Intervention Episode 138 – The Clutch Genetic Diseases Podcast (especially for Step 2CK and Step 1) + Some Thoughts on The New 2CK Exam

In this episode, I perform a very high level review of the vast majority of the genetic diseases tested on the USMLE exams. For those taking 2CK, I would strongly recommend not neglecting this podcast. The same recommendation goes to the folks taking Step 1. At the 32 minute mark, I take a small “podcast break” to give my thoughts on how the NBME appears to be approaching the new Step 2CK questions which tends to offer people a lot of stress and anxiety. You will be doing yourself a huge disservice not learning the bulk of this podcast. If you master this, genetic diseases should be a non-issue going forward. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 137 – Next Best Step In Management Series 1

In this episode, I begin a series that focuses solely on discussing the next best step in management across the gamut of Step 2CK disciplines. This podcast series should help with answering those pesky questions on NBME exams. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 135 – The “Clutch” Electrolyte Podcast

In this episode, I thoroughly examine essentially all major electrolytes tested on the USMLE exams. If electrolytes (Na, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, and other minors) are a problem, this is the podcast you need. This will make those elyte problems go away. I can of course offer no guarantees but this is one of those “net you 20-25 correct questions on USMLE Step 1/2CK/3 exam” sort of podcasts. Probably one of the highest yield on this website and very highly recommended before taking any USMLE exam. Even a resident will find this to be extremely useful. I explain all these electrolytes with a copious number of scenarios and underlying pathophysiology. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 132 – The Floridly High Yield USMLE Social Sciences Review (For Step 2CK, Step 3, and maybe Step 1)

In this episode, I discuss a lot of weird but HY commonly tested social science concepts from the USMLE exams written by the NBME. This podcast is specifically designed to help with those bizarro questions that test non-classical concepts not commonly discussed/covered in most study materials. In this podcast I discuss issues related to palliative/end of life/hospice/pain control care, diagnostic errors/biases, patient safety/QI, professionalism, standardized medical practices (like patient hand offs), ethical conundrums, HIPAA, advanced directives, substance abuse, quick run through of HY vaccines/screening guidelines, and a few more important concepts. You should absolutely listen to this before taking any of the USMLE exams (especially 2CK or 3). Super easy points if you know them. There are no attached slides.
