Hardy Weinberg/Genetic Probability questions are a common staple on all the USMLE exams. This short podcast uses a practice question to illustrate a logical approach to resolving these specific problems on exams.
In this short but ultra HY podcast, I discuss the classically tested genetic syndromes that lead to malignancy on the USMLE exams (Step 1-3). For those taking Step 2CK/3 anytime soon, I have a comprehensive review course and a test taking strategies course from 10/4-8. Shoot me an email via the website for more details.
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.
In this episode, I review the HY commonly tested information on the USMLEs in reference to the B vitamins and Vitamin C. This stuff is routinely tested and shows up on most exams. There are no attached slides.
In this podcast, I spend some time reviewing the HY chromosomes (from 1-22) and the classically tested factoids relating to their genetic diseases. I discuss the clinical/NBME presentations of these diseases. I also give some advice to M3s at the tail end of the podcast and a list of the chromosomes (quick drive by) that are necessary to know by exam (Step 1, Step 2CK). There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I perform a very high level review of the vast majority of the genetic diseases tested on the USMLE exams. For those taking 2CK, I would strongly recommend not neglecting this podcast. The same recommendation goes to the folks taking Step 1. At the 32 minute mark, I take a small “podcast break” to give my thoughts on how the NBME appears to be approaching the new Step 2CK questions which tends to offer people a lot of stress and anxiety. You will be doing yourself a huge disservice not learning the bulk of this podcast. If you master this, genetic diseases should be a non-issue going forward. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our discussion of cell biology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 Exam while integrating some HY pharmacology and pathology. There are no slides attached as all relevant information is in the podcast.
In this episode, I continue our discussion of cell biology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 Exam. There’s a lot of integration with pharmacology and pathology. I also have 1 slide attached that highlights a diagram explaining replication. All other needed information is in the podcast.
Divine Intervention Episode 57 Cell Biology Review For The USMLE Step 1 (Part 2)
In this podcast, I begin a thorough review of cell biology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 Exam. This is effectively the second big half of the biochemistry chapter in First Aid. A small slide set is attached with a question. Everything else is in the podcast.
Divine Intervention Episode 56-Cell Biology Review For The USMLE Step 1 (Part 1)
In this vodcast, I continue our discourse on biochemistry as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 exam. There are attached slides along with a linked youtube video to a recording of the session. Please subscribe and share.
