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.
