About This Course
Mapped to the USMLE content outline, HyGuru's comprehensive USMLE Step 1 course augments the pathophysiology in the free NBME Top Concepts with the relevant physiology and pharmacology. Integrated with immunology and biochemistry, this course provides a high-yield, integrative overview of each organ system. Further differentiating it from the free NBME Top Concepts Course are the following elements:
- Genera Pathology from Pathoma chapters 1-3 with vignette flashcards
- Genetics and Syndromes
- Rapid Review from First Aid on all organ systems
- Acid-Base Physiology
- Additional High Yield Images and PE Findings lectures
No more rote memorization – optimize your understanding
Learning the clinical application of medical facts is critical to success on Step 1 and as a doctor. With Rahul, you’ll learn pathology, biochemistry, physiology, and pharmacology but in an integrated manner. You’ll appreciate the interconnectedness and practical application of these disciplines right from the beginning.
Think like the test maker
Rahul takes you into the head of the test maker early and often by presenting material as it appears within real Step 1 questions.
