In this short but ultra HY podcast, I discuss the classic presentations (read: how they will be tested) of the vast majority of the paraneoplastic syndromes tested on the USMLE exams. It’s not a matter of if it will be tested, just a matter of which one. Listen to this before taking your exam.
Pulmonary emboli are a very commonly tested topic on the USMLE exams. The NBME especially loves to test this topic in the context of “scenarios”. In this podcast, I utilize a scenario heavy approach to address these concepts and explain pathophysiology.
Screening guidelines are heavily tested on all the USMLE exams (especially 2CK/3). In this extremely HY podcast, I discuss all you need to know from a screening perspective for NBME exams. I categorize things in a way that makes remembrance extremely easy. You will get many questions right from this podcast on your exam.
EDIT: For lung cancer, it’s a 20 pack year history (not 30 pack years). And screening starts at 50 years, not 55. Apologies for the confusion.
In this episode, I discuss a series of odd topics that are pertinent to the current USMLE exams (especially Step 2CK and Step 3). These topics include most common complications of disease, important prognostic factors, most common causes of death, etc. I also discuss a host of risk factors not specifically discussed in Ep 37/97. As you can tell from recent reports on reddit/SDN, this is very HY stuff to know for said exams. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I use a large # of questions (hopefully thoughtful ones) to discuss the vast majority of biostats concepts tested on all the USMLE exams (and also the ABIM/Medicine ITE). I emphasize understanding the concepts as against mindlessly memorizing formulas. If you want to become very good at biostats with little or no use of 2 by 2 tables, this is the podcast for you. This podcast should help you understand things enough to reason things out and do very minimal math quickly and efficiently on these exams. THERE ARE ATTACHED SLIDES BELOW! Follow and annotate them as you study.
In this episode, I continue our review for the above named exams with a HY discussion relating to nephrology. I spend the bulk of this podcast discussing the diseases of the glomerulus. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I begin a series where I discuss nephrology as classically tested on these exams. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our discussion of rheumatology as relevant to the aforementioned exams. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I begin a thorough discussion of rheumatology as tested on the ABIM exam. As always, this material should be heavily applicable to the medicine ITE/USMLE Step 3 exam. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our in depth review of cardiology primarily with recourse to ABIM tested concepts. For those preparing for the Medicine ITE/Step 3, many of these concepts are also tested very frequently. This podcast spends time on many this vs that scenarios that tend to cause problems for people on these exams (wrt to cardio). There are no attached slides.
