Crush Step 1: The Ultimate USMLE Step...

With a focus on teaching you to “think like a question writer”, InsideTheBoards is the leading producer of medical education podcasts. Each year during the dedicated prep time we run a “Study Smarter Series for the USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX Level 1” on our Study Smarter Podcast with a focus exclusively on breaking down USMLE style questions.

The Crush Step 1 podcast, the second collaboration between InsideTheBoards and Elsevier, features a totally free, audio optimized, complete narration of Crush Step 1: The Ultimate USMLE Step 1 Review by Ted O'Connell, Ryan Pedigo, and Thomas Blair. Crush Step 1 features up-to-date, easy-to-read (or listen to), high yield info on all the material tested on the exam with topics selected by a review board of current medical students and residents who scored in the 99th percentile on the USMLE Step 1. The Crush Step 1 podcast is the perfect companion for your dedicated prep time.
