Abstract: 

The Step2CK Test Prep Series was created by fourth-year students at the Texas Tech School of Medicine in Lubbock as a project of the fourth-year geriatrics rotation.

The episodes in this series are based on questions that have geriatrics content and patient vignettes from the 2008 Step2CK Sample Exam, available from http://www.ttuhsc.edu/som/fammed/ttmedcast/gerseri....
