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 two articles, both by Dr. Brian Radavansky: 

1) 6 Tips to Finish Strong During Your Dedicated Study Period

2) USMLE Step 1 Question Breakdown (Cough. Cough.)

The #listenlearnlive Contest ("We'll Pay For Yours Boards" thanks to Physicianloans.com)

We're giving away all kinds of prizes in exchange for your help promoting all of InsideTheBoards' podcasts.  

You earn entries by completing certain actions like sharing or reviewing our podcasts. But you probably know that ITB is all about promoting the wellbeing of medical students. So we also want to push the hashtag #listenlearnlive. The "live" part of this represents our interest in not just your scores, but also your lives outside of medicine. Hence, you can also earn entries just for doing healthy things like exercising, walking your dog, spending time with your fam, or listening to music and then snapping a photo, tagging us, and using the hashtag #listenlearnlive in a social media post.

It's actually three separate, month-long contests running now through July. The Top Three winners at the end of each month's contest will be placed into a drawing for the Grand Prize: your USMLE Step 1/Step 2 or COMLEX Level 1/Level 2 Registration Fee (thanks to the generosity of Physicianloans.com )That's a prize worth over $600. We're also giving away things like subscriptions to our All-Audio Qbank. Just go to bit.ly/paymyusmle to sign up.
