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

ITB Audio Qbank and iOS Beta App

The ITB iOS app includes all of 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 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. 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 later this year, you can still subscribe to the long form "podcast version" of ITB's All-Audio Qbank by clicking here.
