Divine Intervention Episode 102 – The “Clutch” Cancer Podcast.

In this episode, I basically spend time discussing the classic presentations and HY pieces of information tested by the NBME on all USMLE exams for the HY malignancies from head to toe. Just like the clutch micro podcast, this will likely net you 10+ correct questions on any of the USMLE exams (Step 1-3). There are no attached slides. And for those that have a family member dealing with malignancy, it is my prayer that they get an outcome that gives you and your family peace. It is tough to lose a loved one to cancer.

Divine Intervention Episode 85 – USMLE Step 1 Hematology Review Part 6 (Final)

In this episode, I conclude our discussion of hematology and oncology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1. When taken together (Podcast 1-6) with the heme/onc pharm podcasts, you should have a complete review of the HY testable material relevant to the USMLE Step 1 from FA for the USMLE Step 1 2019 edition. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 83 – USMLE Step 1 Hematology Review (Part 5)

In this episode, I continue our discussion of Heme-Onc as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 with a focus on all the major anemias (with a few exceptions for the next podcast). I utilize multiple modalities to test the same concept as a means of encouraging retention. In view of this, there are attached slides with questions that you can follow through with as you listen to the audio file. There will be 1 more podcast targeted to Heme-Onc and that should conclude the series.

Divine Intervention Episode 81 – USMLE Step 1 Hematology Review Part 3 (Oncology)

In this episode, I continue our discussion of Heme-Onc as relevant to the USMLE Step 1. This podcast focuses on the hematologic malignancies that are not leukemias or lymphomas (those will be discussed in other podcasts). There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 80 -USMLE Step 1 Hematology Part 2

In this episode, I continue our discussion of hematology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 and largely conclude my discussion of platelets and their disorders. I also discuss some weird “systemic” diseases with hematologic findings that tend to show up on the USMLEs. Between Episodes 79/80, you should become a platelet expert. You can safely skip parts of the podcast where I begin to go into the pathophysiology underlying APLS. However, it may be a useful explanation for those thirsty for more understanding. I am also adding a small slide supplement that essentially describes APLS pathophysiology/testing in words.

Divine Intervention Episode 79 – USMLE Step 1 Hematology Part 1

In this episode, I begin a comprehensive review series on Heme/Onc for the USMLE Step 1 Exam. This will ultimately be in about 5-10 parts (covering essentially all in FA for The USMLE Step 1, 2019 edition) but I should be able to cover the breath of Heme/Onc material as relevant to Step 1. In this podcast, I discuss platelets (and associated disorders) primarily but go on to integrate a lot of immunology, nephrology, and associated pharmacology. There are potentially 5-6 questions you would correctly answer on the exam as a result of this podcast. As an aside, there are already podcasts devoted to Heme-Onc Pharm and some heme pathologies (they are one of my earlier episodes). There are no attached slides.
