In this HY podcast, I discuss the normal physiology of B12 deficiency, causes of B12 deficiency, and pathologies associated with B12 deficiency that are commonly emphasized on the USMLE exams. There are no attached slides.
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.
In this ultra HY podcast, I discuss a wide variety of scenarios and permutations of immunocompromised/transplant patients that commonly show up on the USMLE exams. Think of this as a continuation of Ep 173 (Immunodeficiency diseases). I explain pathophysiology and break things down in ways that makes understanding and remembrance easy. I end with a life lesson on “motivation”. For more info on the Step 2CK/3 class starting tomorrow (6/28-7/2), email me via the website.
In this HY podcast, I discuss the mechanisms associated with embryology from the formation of gonads to the formation of the implanted embryo and it’s 3 layers (endoderm, mesoderm, and ectoderm). I use clear explanations and logic to help you see how everything fits together. There are no attached slides.
Metabolic acidosis is a floridly HY topic to know and understand for all the USMLE exams. Unfortunately, many people struggle with it and resort solely to memorizing lists of differentials which is not ideal. Do you want to conceptually understand metabolic acidosis (both high and normal anion gap) and see it’s integrations with multiple disciplines? If yes, this podcast accomplishes just that. The final fact I wanted to mention but forgot is that anion gap increases with age. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our comprehensive GI series for the USMLEs with a discussion of a host of metabolic GI disorders. There are no attached slides.
In this HY podcast, I continue our comprehensive USMLE gastroenterology series with it’s 5th installation. There are no attached slides. This is a continuation from Episode 298. I discuss a host of gastric and small bowel pathologies while making lots of integrations with other disciplines (especially hematology and pulmonology).
In this ultra HY podcast, I discuss tons of different vignettes as they relate to newborn jaundice and breastfeeding. These things are routinely tested on the USMLE exams and are easy points if you know and understand the relevant pathophysiology. There are no attached slides.
In this ultra HY podcast, I discuss (and explain pathophysiology) all you need to know, including clinical integrations, for the circle of Willis. Short podcast, but super HY to score easy points on your USMLEs. For more info on the Step 2CK/3 course coming up next week, shoot me an email via the website.
In this short, but extremely HY episode, I discuss hyperkalemia from essentially every possible angle that the NBME could test on your exams. I spend time discussing vignettes and explaining pathophysiology so memorization is kept to the bare minimum. This podcast will help you get many questions right on your test. There are no attached slides.
