In this HY episode, I discuss certain updates to concepts/ideas I have discussed in previous podcasts. Guidelines and NBME views on certain topics change and I will periodically make these “patch podcasts” so the website stays ahead of the curve with regards to preparing people for all the USMLE exams.

Divine Intervention Episode 445: The Clutch MI Complications Podcast (Step 1-3)
In this clutch podcast episode, we discuss pretty much all you need to know about MI complications. They test this stuff on all the USMLE exams. I discuss the basic ones but also venture into a lot of what is not really covered in detail by many resources. I spend time explaining pathophysiology so you’re not just blindly memorizing concepts. Super HY stuff to know for your tests.
Divine Intervention Episode 444: The Clutch Thromboses Podcast (for Step 1-3)
There are certain patterns of thromboses that our friends at the NBME are very fond of throwing on exams. This podcast discusses common venous and arterial thrombotic patterns that show up on these tests. I discuss pathophysiology as well. Easily one of the highest yield podcasts on this website. Also, pls note that antibiotics are used in the management of carvernous sinus thrombosis and reduce mortality.
Divine Intervention Episode 443: The Clutch Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor Podcast (for Step 1-3)
Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors come in many flavors. They are also very heavily tested on the USMLE exams. The goal of this podcast is to give you the requisite understanding and basically expose you to all the ways these concepts are routinely tested. This podcast will certainly help you muster some easy points on your exam.
Divine Intervention Episode 442: USMLE Step 2/3 Rapid Review Series 92
In this short but HY episode, I do a lot of comparing and contrasting across a wide variety of psychiatric pathologies. I discuss salient differences between closely related concepts so you don’t mix them up on exams.
Divine Intervention Episode 440: High Dose Dexamethasone (New USMLE Perspective)
This podcast is short but addresses a critical point about the high dose dexamethasone suppression test. This long memorized test by many medical students now has a new outlet that has been expressing itself over the last few months. I discuss this new perspective here.
Divine Intervention Episode 439: Anion Gap Metabolic Acidosis 1
Do you struggle with understanding normal and high anion gap metabolic acidosis? This series is exactly what you need. In this first part, I lay the requisite foundation. In the next part, I will focus on examples. This is certainly a super HY topic for all the USMLEs!
Divine Intervention Episode 438: USMLE Step 2/3 Rapid Review Series 91
In this podcast, I continue our rapid review series for the USMLE Step 2/3 exams with a discussion of some HY endocrine, psychiatric, and neurological concepts that often show up on these tests.
Divine Intervention Episode 437: Infectious Populations (IV Drug Users)
Infectious complications of IVDU are very heavily tested on all the USMLE exams. In this episode, I thoroughly discuss a host of these complications and try to show you ways they love to test these ideas on the USMLEs.
Divine Intervention Episode 436: Eye Findings and The USMLEs (floridly HY for Step 1-3)
This is probably one of the highest yield podcasts I have ever made for the USMLE exams. Strongly consider listening to this ahead of your test. The USMLEs, on every single exam, love to throw in eye findings in the context of other things to test your ability to identify certain pathologies. This podcast, in comprehensive fashion, details many of these pathologies.
