Divine Intervention Episode 226 – The USMLE and Iron Labs.

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.
