        Problems of the Old IMG: Obsolete Knowledge

        By askdoc / February 16, 2012

        As a very old IMG, I was faced not only with the problem of having forgotten a lot of what I knew before. I also have a problem that a lot of what I know is obsolete and there are a lot of new concepts that I do not know.  Medicine is constantly advancing and […]

            Is First Aid Alone Enough For USMLE Step 1 Review?

            By askdoc / May 9, 2011

            When I first started my prep for the USMLE, it seems everyone else was using First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 and swearing it’s the best book ever written for the USMLE. Of course, now that I have finished my own examination and have time to reflect not only on my experience but on […]

                How to Create a Study Plan for the USMLE

                By askdoc / October 26, 2008

                Note: This was initially published in 6 parts and was then consolidated into a downloadable ebook. Why create a study plan for the USMLE? This is probably the question foremost in the mind of anyone who ever thought of tackling the USMLE. I remember when I was starting out, how this pre-occupied me a lot. […]

                  This started out as a reply to a question asked by dr patel on my blog on how to evaluate one’s readiness for the USMLE and avoid making the mistake of taking the examination and failing it. However, it got a little bit too long, so I have decided to rewrite it into an article. […]
