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 ultra HY podcast, I continue our comprehensive GI review series for all the USMLE exams. There are no attached slides.
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 podcast, I cover pretty much everything you need to know about the thyroid on NBME exams (especially 2CK). I discuss all commonly tested pathologies. You can easily become a thyroid expert after working through this short 35 min podcast. The only HY thing I forgot to mention here is the bit on Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome Type 2 (Hashimoto’s, Addisons, And T1DM with AIRE gene mutations). 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 episode, I begin a 3 part comprehensive series that should thoroughly walk you through dermatology as tested on the USMLE exams. I encourage you to look up representative pictures of said pathologies. I discuss classic presentations and some micro integrations. There are no attached slides. Also the next 2CK, 10 hr 1 day high yield course takes place on the 27th of this month. Email me to sign up.
In this short but HY podcast, I describe the mechanisms and classic pathologies tested on the USMLE exams in the context of iron labs. If you digest the material from this podcast, you’ll essentially never have to memorize how labs change in many of the anemias. They’ll just intuitively make perfect sense. I also clear up a lot of confusing concepts for students. Definitely HY for Step 1-3. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our comprehensive review series for the NBME FM Shelf with a discussion of pulm as relevant to the exam. I spend a lot of time on pulmonary testing, COPD, and asthma which are ultra HY topics for the shelf. There are no attached slides.
