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).
