One area of emphasis on more recent USMLE exams are anesthesia/perioperative related complications. This short podcast goes over a lot of the HY ones you need to know and understand as you prepare for the USMLE Step 2CK and Step 3 exams. Do not ignore this stuff.
GI Bleeds show up on essentially all the USMLE Step 2CK/3 exams. In this short podcast, I discuss an accurate approach to correctly answering these questions on the exam.
Thyroid cancer is a topic that shows up commonly on the USMLE exams. This short podcast addresses essentially all you need to know while integrating a few other HY disciplines.
Headaches are very routinely tested on the USMLE exams. This short podcast addresses pretty much everything you need to know about them. For those taking Step 2CK/3 or COMLEX Level 2/3 within the next 3-4 weeks, email me via the website if you’re interested in the course taking place next week.
In this short but floridly HY podcast, I introduce the spinal cord and make some integrations along the way. Neurology is not a memorization science. It’s a rule-based science. This podcast addresses many of these rules so understanding a future podcast I will make (on spinal cord lesions) will be a lot easier. Neurology comes up on the USMLE exams and most of the questions are easy if you just added a little time and attention to studying it.
Secondary hypertension is tested on essentially every USMLE exam in some way, shape, or form. The NBMEs love to integrate the topic with many other disciplines. If you struggle with this specific topic, this podcast is exactly what you need. I present numerous vignettes, integrations, and physiology/pathology tie-ins to help you make sense and simplicity of a nebulous topic.
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.
Believe it or not, fungi are heavily tested on Step 2CK and 3. This short podcast will gift you many easy points on your test. I discuss essentially all the fungi you need to know for your exams and then proceed to make the necessary integrations with other disciplines (like genetics).
This podcast addresses the vast majority of what you need to know for the USMLE exams with hypercalcemia in an integrated format.
In this short but extremely HY podcast, I discuss essentially all you need to know about SLE for the USMLE Step 1-3 exams.
