    Everything You Need to Know About Internal Medicine Audio Board Review

    Audio lectures have long been loved by Internists in their board review period—but Internal Medicine audio board review tools were rife with problems: they required some technical know-how to use effectively, and lecturers could get pretty dry as they read through the review material. 

    Times have changed! Gone are the days of CDs that you have to work to get to play in your car. Now you can play your Internal Medicine audio board review right on your phone!

    MedStudy Core Audio Pearls review

    With MedStudy Core Audio Pearls, you’ll be able to study on-the-go with focused, convenient instruction presented in the same sequence as in the Core, with 44+ hours of streaming audio. You can earn 44 CME credits and MOC points with the Core Audio Pearls.

    We have 10 engaging experts who read in their own personable style, so the lectures never feel like one lecturer droning on and on. The Core Audio Pearls are more like a lecture than an audio book. The physician educators pull out high-yield information from the Core and read it to you out loud. Think of it as a “streamlined” Core, in audio recordings. This Internal Medicine audio board review will engage more of your brain than reading alone, so that you can easily reinforce must-know concepts, procedures, and diagnostic protocols.

    MedStudy Core Audio Pearls review

    The best thing about your internal medicine audio board review is that you can listen from anywhere while you’re doing daily tasks like driving, exercising, doing household chores. You already know that an audio review will provide incredible convenience for your busy schedule, but to get the most out of your review, you should be stacking audio on top of other formats for a deeper review of the concepts. 

    This is a series of recordings made by expert specialty and subspecialty speakers synthesizing and summarizing what you must know from the Core with their own emphasis added. Reviewing a concept from different angles deepens your understanding and memory of that concept. We integrate this evidence-based learning truth into all of our learning tools so that you can approach must-know concepts in multiple ways: fun, live lectures; crisp, conversational text in the Core; Q&As that force you to compare and contrast; illness script Flashcards that present the concept as a story; and flexible audio review.

    Wondering what to try? Stack Core Audio Pearls onto your Digital Study Strong Essentials. This will allow you to reinforce the high-yield topics you read in the Core. Then, your digital Core is interlinked to your Q&As and digital Flashcards, so you can easily hit a topic from multiple review “angles” to embed the concepts in your long term memory.
