In this episode I review a host of HY cardiovascular anatomy scenarios that are especially relevant to the USMLE Step 1 exam.

Divine Intervention Episode 322 – Introduction to General Embryology.
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.
Divine Intervention Episode 310 – The Floridly HY Knee Exam and Pathologies Podcast (for all USMLEs).
Your friends at the NBME love their knee pathologies/exam maneuvers: drawer signs, pes anserine bursitis, baker cysts, meniscal tears, etc etc. If you’ve ever struggled with this topic, this short podcast is what you’re looking for. A strong suggestion is to listen to this before your exam as you’ll likely get a few Qs right easily from this podcast. There are no attached slides.
Divine Intervention Episode 305 – Upper Limb Rapid Review 1 (for the USMLE exams).
In this ultra HY episode, I review a ton of HY clinical presentations and exam contexts for the upper extremities on NBME exams. I utilize a question/answer format to buttress key points while being disciplined about avoiding fluff. There are no attached slides.
Divine Intervention Episode 151 – The Why’s of Anatomy For The USMLE Step 1 (Upper Limbs 3, Lower Limbs 1).
In this episode, I continue our why’s of anatomy review series for the USMLE Step 1 with a conclusion of our discussion on the UEs (vascular, joint stuff) and an introduction of the LEs (vascular, joints, ligaments), etc. This podcast is particularly HY for the USMLE Step 1 Exam as a lot of this pops up frequently in the context of MSK questions. There are no attached slides.
Divine Intervention Episode 148 – The Why’s of Anatomy For The USMLE Step 1 (Upper Limbs 2, Brachial Plexus)
In this episode, I continue our why’s of anatomy series with further discussion of the brachial plexus. I strongly encourage listening to Ep 147 before this. It will make your life considerably easier. The brachial plexus is not hard, it just requires understanding. These 2 podcasts make that possible. There are no attached slides. Remember that this stuff is tested a lot on many exams (even Step 2CK, neuro shelf, surgery shelf, Step 3 to a limited extent).
Divine Intervention Episode 147 – The Why’s of Anatomy For The USMLE Step 1 (Upper Limbs 1, Brachial Plexus)
In this episode, I begin a series I am describing as the why’s of anatomy. I am especially going to hone in on Step 1 relevant anatomy but from the perspective of trying to show you that anatomy actually has mechanisms as against being solely memorization. This podcast focuses on the brachial plexus. There are no attached slides.
Divine Intervention Episode 91 – USMLE Anatomy Series 3 (Vascular Anatomy)
In this episode I detail HY vascular anatomy (arteries) relating to the head, chest, and GI tract with respect to the USMLE Step 1 Exam. This is one of those must listen to podcasts before you take your Step 1 Exam. There is so much HY stuff on here. Draw it out, include the exam correlations in your diagrams, and make absolute certain you commit this stuff to memory. I promise you, it’s HY. There are no attached slides.
Quick correction: Paget Schroetter disease is a DVT of the subclavian/axillary vein. Mistakenly said axillary artery in the podcast.
Divine Intervention Episode 69 – USMLE Anatomy Series 2
This is a continuation of Episode 44 where I begin to discuss anatomy as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 Exam. I would take the scenarios very seriously as these are very commonly tested. Slides attached.

Divine Intervention Episode 44 – USMLE Anatomy Series Part 1
In today’s episode, I use clinical cases and routine questions to cover anatomy content pertinent to the USMLE exams (especially Step 1). These are also potentially useful for the 3rd year surgery shelf. In consideration of the info dense nature of anatomy, the material will be discussed over a series of podcasts in bite sized pieces. Anatomy is relatively difficult to study for (especially for Step 1). The ultimate goal of these podcasts is to highlight HY, classically tested scenarios. Slides attached.
