This podcast is a continuation of Episode 221 (Part 1). In this podcast, I discuss a host of super HY trauma/ortho scenarios that classically pop up on USMLE exams. One big focus in this one are scenarios that are unusual but have a basis in sound pathophysiology. The NBME routinely exploits these for their benefit with head scratching questions. I spend a lot of time explaining mechanistic reasoning so it’s easy to remember. There are no attached slides.
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 HY episode, I continue our GI review series for all the USMLEs. There are no attached slides. I also end with a life lesson on “crossing the aisle” which should help with seeing how your background does not dictate your destiny.
In this short but HY podcast, I discuss the most common NBME scenarios that relate to post exposure prophylaxis for a host of infectious diseases. There are no attached slides.
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.
In this super HY podcast, I discuss extremely important, super commonly tested scenarios that show up on the NBMEs. For the shelf exams mentioned above, expect 5-10 questions from this single podcast and a slightly higher number on 2CK/Step 3. There are no attached slides.
In this podcast, I cover (with rare exceptions which will be discussed in upcoming podcasts) essentially everything you could potentially see on an EM shelf with respect to infectious diseases. This podcast is definitely the type you listen to before your shelf. It’s detailed, but it is extremely HY. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our review series for the NBME EM Shelf with a detailed discussion of endocrine related emergencies that are commonly seen in the ER and encountered on the exam. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I begin a comprehensive series specifically targeted towards the EM NBME Shelf taken by 3rd and 4th year medical students. In this first series, I attempt to cover most conceivable cardio related concepts (arrhythmias, PE, CHF, valvular problems, endocarditis, management steps, EKG goodness, etc) that may show up on the exam. This singular podcast probably represents a good close to 10-15% or more of what would be covered on said shelf. Protip would be to specifically look up examples of the different weird heart rhythms I talk about. There are no attached slides.
