Divine Intervention Episode 255 – The Legendary Step 2CK/3 Pharmacology Podcast.

In this episode, I review many of the HY drugs (including mechanisms of action) that the NBME loves to go after in the post-Step 1. I delve into enough detail that should specifically serve those studying for Step 2CK and Step 3. Listen to this before you take your test! There’ll likely be another iteration of this coming soon. For super detailed pharmacology knowledge, then consider the pharm series I have for Step 1. However, that is likely too detailed for a person studying for the upper level USMLE exams. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 253 – Starling Forces and The NBMEs (for Step 1-3).

In this episode, I review a topic that is floridly HY to know for all the USMLE exams (Step 1, 2CK, and 3). This topic has a unique way of presenting itself in physiological/pathological scenarios on these exams. I discuss the vast majority of these scenarios in this podcast. Pay close attention here. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 251 – The HY Thyroid Podcast (For Step 1-3).

In this podcast, I cover pretty much everything you need to know about the thyroid on NBME exams (especially 2CK). I discuss all commonly tested pathologies. You can easily become a thyroid expert after working through this short 35 min podcast. The only HY thing I forgot to mention here is the bit on Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome Type 2 (Hashimoto’s, Addisons, And T1DM with AIRE gene mutations). There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 250 – The Ultra HY Vaccine Podcast (and upcoming 2CK Course 8.8.20).

In this super HY podcast, I discuss the commonly tested topic of vaccines (and their schedules). This stuff shows up a lot on the USMLEs (1-3), Family Med, Peds, OBGYN, and IM Shelf exams. I take a somewhat different approach to make it super easy to learn. First, I discuss lots of common exam scenarios so you’re not just memorizing information. Second, I give a bunch of rules that makes the information extremely digestible; and third, I describe vaccines for a few “special NBME populations”. Trust me, this podcast will make the vaccine schedules a lot more palatable to learn. There are no attached slides.
