In this short but extremely HY podcast, I discuss the vast majority of what you need to know in relation to amyloidosis for all the USMLE exams. Please listen to this podcast before you take any USMLE exam!
Many people struggle mightily with understanding and properly answering questions with hypersensitivity reactions. This podcast discusses the mechanism behind each type, provides examples, and makes integrations by introducing key tidbits the NBME loves to emphasize. Should easily net you a few points on all the USMLEs.
In this short but extremely HY podcast, I discuss essentially all you need to know about SLE for the USMLE Step 1-3 exams.
In this ultra HY podcast, I discuss a wide variety of scenarios and permutations of immunocompromised/transplant patients that commonly show up on the USMLE exams. Think of this as a continuation of Ep 173 (Immunodeficiency diseases). I explain pathophysiology and break things down in ways that makes understanding and remembrance easy. I end with a life lesson on “motivation”. For more info on the Step 2CK/3 class starting tomorrow (6/28-7/2), email me via the website.
In this extremely high yield podcast, I go into a thorough discussion of the coronavirus/COVID-19 in the context of NBME exams. I spend a lot of time explaining pathophysiology and making tons of integrations with immunology, cardio, pulm, micro, etc. This should essentially help you answer any USMLE Q you see and also help you understand a lot about what is going on with the pandemic in our world.
In this super HY podcast, I discuss the commonly tested topic of vaccines (and their schedules). This stuff shows up a lot on the USMLEs (1-3), Family Med, Peds, OBGYN, and IM Shelf exams. I take a somewhat different approach to make it super easy to learn. First, I discuss lots of common exam scenarios so you’re not just memorizing information. Second, I give a bunch of rules that makes the information extremely digestible; and third, I describe vaccines for a few “special NBME populations”. Trust me, this podcast will make the vaccine schedules a lot more palatable to learn. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I review essentially all the HY auto-antibodies that may be tested on all the USMLE exams. Short but HY as you’ll almost see a few of these pop up on Step 1, 2CK, and 3. I discuss them using clinical vignettes. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I begin a comprehensive Immunology review series for topics commonly tested on the USMLE Step 1 Exam. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I discuss all the drugs that are tested in the context of Immunology for The USMLE Step 1 exam. I also go over all the monoclonal antibodies that are tested on the exam (basically every monoclonal that is found in First Aid for The USMLE Step 1, 2018). I discuss the mechanism of action and other HY tidbits related to these monoclonals. There are no slides for this podcast (all you need is in the recording).
