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".

USMLE Step 2 Secrets is now an InsideTheBoards 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. Just saying ;) 

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". 

To learn more about Dr. Ted O'Connell (or for a 1 min distraction that will have you asking WTF?) listen to our promo for the Step 2 Secrets Podcast

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.
