Episode 13: An Ophthalmology Question

In this episode I go through a Step One style ophthalmology question. Eye anatomy and knowing the things that can affect each layer are important for this question.

Thanks for being patient waiting for this episode, I got pretty busy between thanksgiving and my clerkships these past few weeks.

Episode 12: A Hyponatremia Question

In this episode we tackle a USMLE Step One style hyponatremia question. These can be difficult questions because sodium interacts with so many systems and hormones so it pays to learn to do them methodically and then speed up to the 90 seconds you have for each question.

Episode 10: A Intracranial Hemorrhage Question

In this episode we encounter a fairly straight forward question about bleeding inside the skull. You wouldn’t think there would be that much difference about where that blood goes as to what happens, but the presentations and CT findings are can be very distinct making them good Step One material. There is a lot more to neurology but this is one area you can nail and get every question right very easily if you know the terminology and imaging findings.
