Pregnancy: Get your ice cream & pickles for two

November 24, 2019

In this episode, we covered high-yield aspects of female reproductive physiology for the USMLE and COMLEX. Get ready to learn about topics like fertilization, physiologic changes of pregnancy – particularly related to the cardiovascular system – as well as molar pregnancy. Enjoy!

Welcome to Physiology by Physeo (an InsideTheBoards podcast)! This show brings together some of the best boards-relevant content for physiology and pathophysiology from three innovative platforms: Physeo, InsideTheBoards, and Med School Phys. Having gone through the grind of med school ourselves, we understand the fast-paced lifestyle you're living right now, so our aim is to help the listener learn while on-the-go. By listening to our show, you'll be one step closer to slaying the USMLE.

Book Blurb - Read this before medical school: How to study smarter and live better while excelling in class and on your USMLE or COMLEX board exams

Will medical school make or break you? Whether you’ve just gotten your acceptance or are already in the cadaver lab, you can get through (relatively) unscathed by learning from those who’ve already survived and thrived. Herein, we provide you with the hard-won tips, tools, and insights that helped us to excel during those four grueling years. Beyond providing study tips, we draw on inspiration from fields like psychology, neuroscience, education, business, and even self-help to assemble a complete guide to accelerate your development as a medical student and future physician. You’ll even get our personal recommendations for outside resources, such as specific websites and apps, that gave us a leg-up during medical school. NO OTHER book offers this much information, assembled together in one place, and without the fluff. Below are some of the key topics we chose to cover:


1) Study tips to help you sail through classes

2) Test-taking strategies to help you ace the USMLE and/or COMLEX board exams

3) Accelerated learning techniques like speed reading, memory palaces and concept maps

4) Time-management and productivity hacks

5) Tools for self-assessment to track your development

6) Advice on wellness, work-life balance, and burnout prevention


We’ve been down this road before, and we can show you the best paths to travel, which ones to avoid, and which can take you all the way to the top.
