Divine Intervention Episode 321 – The Clutch Metabolic Acidosis Podcast (for all USMLEs).

Metabolic acidosis is a floridly HY topic to know and understand for all the USMLE exams. Unfortunately, many people struggle with it and resort solely to memorizing lists of differentials which is not ideal. Do you want to conceptually understand metabolic acidosis (both high and normal anion gap) and see it’s integrations with multiple disciplines? If yes, this podcast accomplishes just that. The final fact I wanted to mention but forgot is that anion gap increases with age. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 313 – The Floridly HY Hyperkalemia Podcast (for Step 1-3) + 20 hour 2CK/3 course reminder.

In this short, but extremely HY episode, I discuss hyperkalemia from essentially every possible angle that the NBME could test on your exams. I spend time discussing vignettes and explaining pathophysiology so memorization is kept to the bare minimum. This podcast will help you get many questions right on your test. There are no attached slides.

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 169 – The Clutch Nephrotic/Nephritic Syndrome Podcast.

In this podcast, I cover everything you can ever wish to know/understand about the HY nephrotic and nephritic syndromes that show up on Step 1, 2CK, 3, and the IM exams. I very rapidly cover the material in different layers and discuss classic findings, clinical presentation, diagnostic testing, treatment, and pathophysiology to help with really cementing the material. You’ll have to work incredibly hard to ever get any nephrotic/nephritic syndrome question wrong on pretty much any medical exam after listening to this. There are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 146 – Comprehensive USMLE Renal Pharmacology Part 1.

In this episode, I begin a discussion of renal pharmacology as pertinent to the USMLE Step 1 Exam. I integrate my discussion with multiple disciplines. Note that there is also a detailed, comprehensive renal review series for Step 1 (Episodes 52-54). For this podcast, there are no attached slides.

Divine Intervention Episode 135 – The “Clutch” Electrolyte Podcast

In this episode, I thoroughly examine essentially all major electrolytes tested on the USMLE exams. If electrolytes (Na, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, and other minors) are a problem, this is the podcast you need. This will make those elyte problems go away. I can of course offer no guarantees but this is one of those “net you 20-25 correct questions on USMLE Step 1/2CK/3 exam” sort of podcasts. Probably one of the highest yield on this website and very highly recommended before taking any USMLE exam. Even a resident will find this to be extremely useful. I explain all these electrolytes with a copious number of scenarios and underlying pathophysiology. There are no attached slides.
