In this episode, I continue our rapid review series for the USMLE Step 2CK exam with a discussion of a host of microbiological concepts and calcification patterns that tend to pop up on the exam. There are no attached slides. As a reminder, the next 2CK course is on 9/5 (this Saturday).
In this HY podcast, I review the vast majority of the bilirubin related pathologies that are commonly tested on the USMLE exams (Step 1-3). This podcast is super relevant for those taking Step 2CK/Step 3. You will get multiple questions right from this podcast on your test. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our rapid review series for the USMLE Step 2CK exam with a discussion of a host of basic science concepts that tend to show up commonly on the exam. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I review many of the HY drugs (including mechanisms of action) that the NBME loves to go after in the post-Step 1. I delve into enough detail that should specifically serve those studying for Step 2CK and Step 3. Listen to this before you take your test! There’ll likely be another iteration of this coming soon. For super detailed pharmacology knowledge, then consider the pharm series I have for Step 1. However, that is likely too detailed for a person studying for the upper level USMLE exams. There are no attached slides.
In this short podcast, I discuss a host of courses that I’ll be holding over the next month given the ERAS deadline that is upon us with lots of people taking exams in the next few weeks. The courses discussed here include the 10 hr 1 day 2CK Course, the 2 day (5hr/day) 2CK Course, and the NBME Test Taking Strategies course (2-2.5 hrs).
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.
In this short but HY podcast, I discuss the most common NBME scenarios that relate to post exposure prophylaxis for a host of infectious diseases. There are no attached slides.
In this podcast, I cover pretty much everything you need to know about the thyroid on NBME exams (especially 2CK). I discuss all commonly tested pathologies. You can easily become a thyroid expert after working through this short 35 min podcast. The only HY thing I forgot to mention here is the bit on Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome Type 2 (Hashimoto’s, Addisons, And T1DM with AIRE gene mutations). There are no attached slides.
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 short pulm focused podcast, I discuss a host of common exam scenarios that deal with factors that affect blood O2 content. There are no attached slides.
