Divine Intervention Episode 253 – Starling Forces and The NBMEs (for Step 1-3).

In this episode, I review a topic that is floridly HY to know for all the USMLE exams (Step 1, 2CK, and 3). This topic has a unique way of presenting itself in physiological/pathological scenarios on these exams. I discuss the vast majority of these scenarios in this podcast. Pay close attention here. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 244 – The NBME and Cardiac Valvular Disorders (+ Upcoming 2CK Course 7/11/20).

In this podcast, I review a floridly HY topic that is classically tested by our friends at the NBME: the cardiac valvular disorders. I focus very specifically on HY bits of information they love to test and leave out fluff. In addition, I spend quite a bit of time focusing on pathophysiology so you don’t have to waste time memorizing long lists of stuff. There are no attached slides.

In addition, the next 20ish person 10 hr 2CK class takes place on the 11th of July via zoom. Reach out to me at divineinterventionpodcasts@gmail.com to reserve a spot.

Divine Intervention Episode 232 – Vasculitis and The USMLE.

In this HY podcast, I review all you need to know about the vasculitides as tested on the USMLE exams. You’ll definitely see some of these on the test you write (Step 1, 2CK, 3). I go into tons of pathophysiology so you’re not just blindly memorizing associations. I however discuss the classic presentations (NBME vocab) you’re likely to see. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 179 – USMLE Step 1 Cardiology Review Series 8 (Pathology).

In this episode, I continue our cardiology review series for the USMLE Step 1 Exam with a focus on a host of pathological concepts. I have discussed some of these before but I approach them from a different perspective this time and highlight some unique histologic findings that you will likely find to be useful on the NBME exams. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 178 – USMLE Step 1 Cardiology Review Series 7 (Vascular Pathology).

In this episode, I continue our cardiology review for the USMLE Step 1 exam. In this podcast, I take the unusual approach of using clinical vignettes to go over close to 80-100 different HY cardiac pathologies. You certainly want to listen to this before taking the USMLE Step 1 exam. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 176 – USMLE Step 1 Cardiology Review Series 6 (Cardiac Embryology).

In this episode, I continue our comprehensive review series of cardiology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 exam. This podcast is especially HY because it covers embryology which is routinely tested on the USMLE Step 1. I am also attaching a slide deck that highlights the pathophysiology behind Tetralogy of Fallot.

Divine Intervention Episode 172 – USMLE Step 1 Cardiology Review Series 5 (Congenital Diseases).

In this podcast, I continue our review of cardiology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 with a discussion of congenital heart defects. This is a very HY podcast and I also draw correlations to some other HY anatomical/hematological concepts. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 171 – USMLE Step 1 Cardiology Review Series 4 (and Podcast App Update!)

In this episode, I cover a very HY series of topics relating to cardiology as tested on the USMLE Step 1 Exam. I explain pathophysiology and specifically discuss the classic presentation of these disorders. Topics discussed here are very high value and show up on the vast majority of NBME exams (including 2CK and 3). There are no attached slides.

The podcasts on this website are now also accessible on Apple podcasts, Google play music, and spotify. As always, slides and other relevant supplemental material will remain on the website.

In this episode I continue our comprehensive cardiology review series for the USMLE Step 1 exam with a discussion of HY cardiac pathologies. I would strongly recommend listening to the early part of Episode 5 on this website as I discuss the pathophysiology behind some of the physical exam maneuvers and how they affect murmur intensity. Note that Part 1 is Episode 116 and Part 2 is Episode 154. There are no attached slides.
