by Joseph Alpert, MD

Don't attempt Step 2 or your shelf exams without knowing the topic of vascular medicine.

The studies of diseases of the cardiovascular system and the lymphatic system will be explained to you by Prof. Joseph Alpert, an expert in teaching and preparing students for their internal medicine boards.

This course provides you with information on all relevant exam topics:

  • Basic diagnostic techniques
  • Arterial diseases
  • Aortic aneurysm
  • Aortic Dissection
  • Deep venous thrombosis
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • Lymphedema

Use high-yield topic reviews, quizzes, clinical pearls and mnemonics to close knowledge gaps.

Our goal is to aid you in fully understanding a topic instead of memorizing its facts, so you can solve clinical USMLE Step 2 or NBME Shelf exam vignettes with ease.

Thank you so much Dr. Joseph, i have always hated everything to do with Cardiovascular diseases, because I personally found it too confusing and hard to grasp, but you made me fall in love with Cardiology and made me want to learn everything about it. I wish you were my professor in university, i would adore to come to your lectures even if they started at 5 am. You are the most charming and charismatic, adorable professor in the world. I am admiring how enthusiastic you are about everything you say, and I can feel from thousand miles away the passion you have for what you are doing! I am honoured to be able to listen to your lectures and learn from someone so experienced and so smart! You deserve 10+ stars.
