In this episode, I use a large # of questions (hopefully thoughtful ones) to discuss the vast majority of biostats concepts tested on all the USMLE exams (and also the ABIM/Medicine ITE). I emphasize understanding the concepts as against mindlessly memorizing formulas. If you want to become very good at biostats with little or no use of 2 by 2 tables, this is the podcast for you. This podcast should help you understand things enough to reason things out and do very minimal math quickly and efficiently on these exams. THERE ARE ATTACHED SLIDES BELOW! Follow and annotate them as you study.
In this episode, I discuss a lot of weird but HY commonly tested social science concepts from the USMLE exams written by the NBME. This podcast is specifically designed to help with those bizarro questions that test non-classical concepts not commonly discussed/covered in most study materials. In this podcast I discuss issues related to palliative/end of life/hospice/pain control care, diagnostic errors/biases, patient safety/QI, professionalism, standardized medical practices (like patient hand offs), ethical conundrums, HIPAA, advanced directives, substance abuse, quick run through of HY vaccines/screening guidelines, and a few more important concepts. You should absolutely listen to this before taking any of the USMLE exams (especially 2CK or 3). Super easy points if you know them. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I discuss HY principles relating to the ethics questions that classically show up on the USMLE Step 1, 2CK, and Step 3 exams. This is probably one of those podcasts you’d want to get through in the few days leading up to your test. Free points if you know the concepts discussed. I try to explain classically tested ethics principles with permutations as to how they may present along with specifics on what to do in each circumstance. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I discuss a large majority of the most important risk factors for commonly tested NBME diseases (including OBGYN). I also discuss high yield screening guidelines and “most common causes of death”. Easy points if you know this stuff on test day. Relevant for Step 1-3 and the M3 Shelf exams. No slides attached as all relevant information is in the podcast.
