Divine Intervention Episode 184 – The NBME Weird (Complications, Prognostics, More Risk Factors/Common Causes of Death/Screenings). An Episode 37/97 Extension.

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.

Divine Intervention Episode 143 – The Clutch Biostats Review (Comprehensive for all the USMLE exams).

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.

Divine Intervention Episode 106 – ABIM/Medicine ITE/USMLE Step 3 Review Series 6 (Cardio 2).

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.

Divine Intervention Episode 103 – ABIM/Medicine ITE/Step 3 Review Series 5 (Cardiology 1)

In this episode, I continue our review of concepts classically tested on the ABIM and the Medicine ITE. These topics also tend to show up on the USMLE Step 3 exam. The primary focus of this podcast is on cardiology (which makes up about 15% of the ABIM exam)! This will ultimately form part of an expanded series focusing on cardiology. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 98 – USMLE Step 3/Medicine ITE/ABIM Review Series 4 (Diabetic Emergencies)

In this episode, I discuss diabetic emergencies (DKA/HHNC) as tested on the USMLE Step 3/MITE/ABIM exam. This is definitely a topic you’d want to understand in-depth for all 3 exams (and also for clinical practice). I focus on management and HY testable concepts. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 88 – USMLE Step 3/Medicine ITE/ABIM Review Series 3 (Meningitis)

Given the fact that this podcast series is likely going to be used by M4’s/residents, I will start making the Step 3/ABIM/MITE series shorter so you can get in some studying if you have a 15-20 min break or have a drive to the hospital. In view of this, there will be many more podcasts for this series (and I will start making them more frequently). There are no attached slides. In this episode, I detail essentially everything you need to know about meningitis for these 3 exams. One important tidbit I forgot to mention is giving IV Dexamethasone about 15 mins before starting abx therapy if you suspect S. Pneumo as the offending organism. You do this for 4 days. There are no attached slides.
