In this short podcast, I talk about my strategy for dealing with drug ads, timing, and spaced repetition for the USMLE exams. I also talk about how to approach the “new” USMLE Step 2CK exam. At the end, I spend time discussing a new 10 hr “HY Booster” Step 2CK/3 course that I have offered on a 1-on-1 basis for a while now. The Step 1 analog runs for about 20 hrs. The course has been in testing for a few months and has gotten overwhelmingly good feedback. There are no attached slides.
