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
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 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.
Divine Intervention Episode 435: Diseases of The Neuromuscular Junction (for Step 1-3)
In this short but ultra HY podcast, I discuss the neuromuscular junction disorders that you need to know for your exams. The NBMEs have in recent times become astute at testing this material in unique ways. This podcast should really help you nail these disorders on your exams. I compare and contrast things, discuss classic/unusual presentations, and explain relevant pathophysiology.
Divine Intervention Episode 434: USMLE Step 2/3 Rapid Review Series 90
In this HY episode, I discuss some classic vignettes while integrating the relevant physiology, pharmacology, and pathology. I also discuss ways to differentiate some closely related pathologies. Easy points on your test.
Divine Intervention Episode 433: Adverse Drug Reactions for The USMLE exams Part 2 (Step 1-3)
In this super HY podcast, I discuss a host of commonly tested adverse drug reactions around the blood elements (RBCs, WBCs, platelets). These things show up on almost every USMLE exam. It is a continuation of Episode 387 on the website. If you’re interested in helping with the transcription of my Step 1 podcasts, reach out to Lukasz Adamczyk at email@example.com.
