In this short but super HY podcast, I discuss the HY X linked dominant disorders you need to know for the USMLE/COMLEX exams and also spend time discussing probabilities you need to use on exams when asked about this specific inheritance pattern.
In this short but HY podcast, I discuss some nice rules for remembering the modes of inheritance classically tested on the USMLE exams.
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.
In this ultra HY podcast, I discuss tons of different vignettes as they relate to newborn jaundice and breastfeeding. These things are routinely tested on the USMLE exams and are easy points if you know and understand the relevant pathophysiology. There are no attached slides.
In this podcast, I spend some time reviewing the HY chromosomes (from 1-22) and the classically tested factoids relating to their genetic diseases. I discuss the clinical/NBME presentations of these diseases. I also give some advice to M3s at the tail end of the podcast and a list of the chromosomes (quick drive by) that are necessary to know by exam (Step 1, Step 2CK). There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I perform a very high level review of the vast majority of the genetic diseases tested on the USMLE exams. For those taking 2CK, I would strongly recommend not neglecting this podcast. The same recommendation goes to the folks taking Step 1. At the 32 minute mark, I take a small “podcast break” to give my thoughts on how the NBME appears to be approaching the new Step 2CK questions which tends to offer people a lot of stress and anxiety. You will be doing yourself a huge disservice not learning the bulk of this podcast. If you master this, genetic diseases should be a non-issue going forward. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our rapid review series for the USMLE Step 2CK exam with a focus on Peds. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our rapid review series for the Step 2CK exam with a focus on IM/Peds. There’s also a tinge of neuro and surgery discussed. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our rapid review series for the USMLE Step 2CK with a discussion of HY material relating to IM/Peds. I spend quite a bit of time talking about cardiac pathologies. There are no slides attached.
In this episode, I go over a large number of HY case scenarios for the USMLE Step 2CK exam in a rapid review format. As discussed earlier, these “rapid review” podcasts focus almost entirely on the specific ways concepts are presented on NBME exams. There are no attached slides.
