In this clutch podcast episode, we discuss pretty much all you need to know about MI complications. They test this stuff on all the USMLE exams. I discuss the basic ones but also venture into a lot of what is not really covered in detail by many resources. I spend time explaining pathophysiology so you’re not just blindly memorizing concepts. Super HY stuff to know for your tests.

Divine Intervention Episode 444: The Clutch Thromboses Podcast (for Step 1-3)
There are certain patterns of thromboses that our friends at the NBME are very fond of throwing on exams. This podcast discusses common venous and arterial thrombotic patterns that show up on these tests. I discuss pathophysiology as well. Easily one of the highest yield podcasts on this website. Also, pls note that antibiotics are used in the management of carvernous sinus thrombosis and reduce mortality.
Divine Intervention Episode 409 – The Clutch Hemoglobin Podcast (for Step 1-3)
Hemoglobin is associated with a subset of questions on all USMLE exams. If you want to truly understand Hb and make integrations with multiple disciplines, this is exactly what you need.

Divine Intervention Episode 360 – The Clutch Secondary Hypertension Podcast (Step 1-3)
Secondary hypertension is tested on essentially every USMLE exam in some way, shape, or form. The NBMEs love to integrate the topic with many other disciplines. If you struggle with this specific topic, this podcast is exactly what you need. I present numerous vignettes, integrations, and physiology/pathology tie-ins to help you make sense and simplicity of a nebulous topic.

Divine Intervention Episode 346 – Cardiovascular Pharmacology for The USMLE Step 2CK/3 Exams Part 1 (+ 11/1-5 Step 2CK/3 Course Reminder)
Cardiovascular pharmacology is an area that the NBMEs have a strong focus on across all USMLE exams. Most people find this topic too nebulous to study (wrt Step 2CK/3) as it integrates with so many disciplines. If this is your problem, you have come to the right place. The goal of this podcast series is to show you exactly what you need to know from an NBME perspective, help you understand the material, and help you integrate things in the way the NBME loves to integrate them.

Divine Intervention Episode 326 – Pediatric Cardiology and Hemodynamic Changes for the USMLE exams.
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.
