InsideTheBoards Audio Blog (powered by MedSchoolTutors) 

Another feature in our Audio Blog series where we take posts from The MedSchoolTutors Blog (the very best blog for medical school) and record them for on-the-go learning. We're focusing on articles that cover question breakdowns, examination and study advice, and those related to mental wellbeing and wellness during medical school. 

Today's episode features the article:

  1. Chest X-Ray

  3. RUQ US
  4. Amylase, Lipase, and LFTs
