In this ultra HY episode, I review a ton of HY clinical presentations and exam contexts for the upper extremities on NBME exams. I utilize a question/answer format to buttress key points while being disciplined about avoiding fluff. There are no attached slides.
Quick correction from episode 304. The US drives on the RIGHT so individuals will be hit on the left side of their bodies.
This podcast is a continuation of Episode 221 (Part 1). In this podcast, I discuss a host of super HY trauma/ortho scenarios that classically pop up on USMLE exams. One big focus in this one are scenarios that are unusual but have a basis in sound pathophysiology. The NBME routinely exploits these for their benefit with head scratching questions. I spend a lot of time explaining mechanistic reasoning so it’s easy to remember. There are no attached slides.
In this HY podcast, I wrap up our discussion of diabetes as classically tested on the USMLE exams. As I did in episodes 301/302, I make tons of integrations with other disciplines and go through pathophysiology as a means of aiding thorough understanding. There are no attached slides.
In this ultra HY continuation of Episode 301, I continue our discussion of diabetes and its classic presentations on the USMLE exams. I make tons of integrations to other disciplines to help with understanding and contextualization. There will be a final part in the series coming up soon. I highly recommend knowing all 3 members of the series cold as you will get many NBME questions correct from them. There are no attached slides.
In this extremely HY podcast, I discuss diabetes as relevant to the USMLE exams. The main topic of this episode is diabetes but I spend lots of time making LOADS of integrations that pop up routinely on the exams. I would listen to this, take detailed notes, understand them, and commit these to memory. There are no attached slides and a follow up podcast should be coming in soon.
In this extremely high yield podcast, I go into a thorough discussion of the coronavirus/COVID-19 in the context of NBME exams. I spend a lot of time explaining pathophysiology and making tons of integrations with immunology, cardio, pulm, micro, etc. This should essentially help you answer any USMLE Q you see and also help you understand a lot about what is going on with the pandemic in our world.
In this episode, I continue the rapid review series for the 2CK exam with a discussion of a host of misnomers people encounter on NBME exams (especially around hematology) that may get them into trouble. I explain lots of pathophysiology so you’re not stuck memorizing mindless details.
In this short podcast, I discuss the upcoming comprehensive 2CK/3 course taking place in April (4/28-5/1). It’s 5 hrs each day from 11a-4p PST (2-7 pm EST) via zoom. The NBME test taking strategies class will hold on 4/27 from 2-4.30 pm PST (5-7.30p EST). These 2 courses have been taken by lots of people who have done really well on their exams and represent a hyper-efficient means of reviewing the vast majority of tested material (including Nov 2020 changes and some associated Step 1 content) in a short time frame. I focus extensively on helping you understand material and correctly answer questions as the NBME writes them.
In this HY episode, I continue our GI review series for all the USMLEs. There are no attached slides. I also end with a life lesson on “crossing the aisle” which should help with seeing how your background does not dictate your destiny.
