The NBME is quite good at writing questions where they test your knowledge of pressures/volumes/hemodynamic changes associated with pediatric heart defects. Many MS3s/4s routinely get these questions wrong on exams. If you fall into this bucket, this podcast will effectively fix this problem. The concepts emphasized here are very heavily on the USMLE exams (Step 1-3) and peds shelf exams.
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 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.
In this podcast, I review a floridly HY topic that is classically tested by our friends at the NBME: the cardiac valvular disorders. I focus very specifically on HY bits of information they love to test and leave out fluff. In addition, I spend quite a bit of time focusing on pathophysiology so you don’t have to waste time memorizing long lists of stuff. There are no attached slides.
In addition, the next 20ish person 10 hr 2CK class takes place on the 11th of July via zoom. Reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
Shock is an ultra HY topic for all the USMLE exams. This podcast gives you everything you need to know to answer those questions. There are no attached slides.
In this HY podcast, I review all you need to know about the vasculitides as tested on the USMLE exams. You’ll definitely see some of these on the test you write (Step 1, 2CK, 3). I go into tons of pathophysiology so you’re not just blindly memorizing associations. I however discuss the classic presentations (NBME vocab) you’re likely to see. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I discuss a large number of HY cardiology vignettes commonly tested on the 2CK exam. There are no attached slides.
In this episode I continue our comprehensive cardiology review series for the USMLE Step 1 exam with a discussion of HY cardiac pathologies. I would strongly recommend listening to the early part of Episode 5 on this website as I discuss the pathophysiology behind some of the physical exam maneuvers and how they affect murmur intensity. Note that Part 1 is Episode 116 and Part 2 is Episode 154. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our discussion of cardiology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 exam (continuation from Episode 116 and Episode 5). My ultimate goal is to cover everything in the FA for Step 1 book. I explain mechanisms and discuss classic presentations. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our rapid review series for the USMLE Step 2CK exam with a discussion of HY NBME case scenarios relating to MIs. There are no attached slides.
