Preparing for the Psychiatry Clerkship with Dr. David Puder: The Six Boxes of Psychiatric Interviews Part 2 | USMLE Step 2 Study Smarter Series for Psychiatry

December 16, 2019

Today's episode is a continuation from last week of Nick Nissen's interview with  Dr.David Puder from the Psychiatry & Psychotherapy podcast.  

The USMLE Step 2 Secrets Podcast 

As a book, USMLE Step 2 Secrets, by Theodore X. O’Connell, MD, ITB's Chief Content Officer and (among many other things) author of Crush Step 1: The Ultimate USMLE Step 1 Review, is recognized as an effective, high-yield study tool for the USMLE Step 2 and COMLEX Level 2. Plus....BONUS...it fits easily into a "short white coat" pocket ;) 

As a podcast, it has now been optimized for audio learning and InsideTheBoards is re-launching the S2S podcast in conjunction with Elsevier (thanks Elsevier, what a cool publisher. ITB is improving the production quality and together with Dr. O'Connell, adding high-yield questions breakdowns (which is, after all, kind of our schtick) from Elsevier's Clinical Key Student (see? Elsevier rocks). 

During our Step 2 Study Smarter Series, we'll be releasing an episode of curated questions targeting each clerkship. This one is a selection of some of the highest yield questions from the various chapters in the book that cover surgery topics. Do you want more content to study on the go for the USMLE Step 2? Then go listen to the entire Step 2 Secrets Podcast. The whole book is already out now in audio form. And we're replacing some of the older episodes over the coming weeks and months with the new "enhanced versions".

We're launching a new podcast. It's focused on high-yield, physiology for first and second year medical students, especially those studying for their USMLE Step 1 or COMLEX Level 1 Exam. It's called Physiology by Physeo (An InsideTheBoards Podcast) hosted by our own Greg Rodden. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts so you know when the new episodes drop. For now, listen to the trailer to find out how you can get a 25% discount on a premium Physeo subscription. You can also listen to Physiology by Physeo on Podbean and Spotify.  Subscribe to it now! 

ITB Audio Qbank and iOS Beta App

The ITB iOS app is (finally!) here. It includes all our podcasts (with exclusive and expanded content), early access to podcasts we'll be releasing in the future, some meditations designed specifically for medical students and especially intended for use during your dedicated USMLE prep time (gotta keep those stress levels down, right?), plus the beta version of our all audio qbank. Step 1 is powered by Exam Circle and Lecturio, and the Step 2 version is powered by OnlineMedEd. There's a sample of high yield audio questions for each version, and of course you can purchase a subscription to help us finish the full scale, Android and iOS app, which will have tons more features. It's not perfect. But it is THE PERFECT companion for studying for the boards on the go. And we're adding content and improving it all the time. Search the App Store for "InsideTheBoards" or click here to download it now. 

Android user? Until we release the cross-platform version of the app this summer, you can still subscribe to the podcast version of ITB's All-Audio Qbank by clicking here

The #listenlearnlive Contest ("We'll Pay For Yours Boards" thanks to Physicianloans.com)

We're giving away all kinds of prizes in exchange for your help promoting InsideTheBoards.  

You earn entries by completing certain actions like sharing or reviewing our podcasts. But you probably know that ITB is all about promoting the wellbeing of medical students. So we also want to push the hashtag #listenlearnlive. The "live" part of this represents our interest in not just your scores, but also your lives outside of medicine. Hence, you can also earn entries just for doing healthy things like exercising, walking your dog, spending time with your fam, or listening to music and then snapping a photo, tagging us, and using the hashtag #listenlearnlive in a social media post.

It's actually three separate, month-long contests running now through July. The Top Three winners at the end of each month's contest will be placed into a drawing for the Grand Prize: your USMLE Step 1/Step 2 or COMLEX Level 1/Level 2 Registration Fee (thanks to the generosity of Physicianloans.com )That's a prize worth over $600. We're also giving away things like subscriptions to our All-Audio Qbank. Just go to bit.ly/paymyusmle to sign up.
