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. For more details relating to the 2CK/3 24 Hour Course and NBME Test Taking Strategies Course taking place in 2 weeks, shoot me an email via the website.

Pleural abnormalities are a topic that show up in some way on the USMLE Step 1-3 exams almost 100% of the time, typically with multiple questions per exam. This podcast discusses essentially all you need to know in an easy to understand format. I spend time on mechanisms, integrations, and classic presentations to help you nail down the information.

Divine Intervention Episode 304 – The Floridly HY Trauma/Ortho Podcast Part 2 (for the surgery/EM shelf and Step 2CK/3).

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.
