Abstract: 

The Step1 Test Prep Series was created by second-year students at the Texas Tech School of Medicine in Lubbock as a project of the MS2 Aging Block of Systems Disorders II. It was developed as part of the Reynolds Geriatrics Podcast series, which is supported in part by an Aging and Quality of Life grant from the D.W. Reynolds Foundation. The episodes in this series are based on questions that have geriatrics content and patient vignettes from the 2009 Step1 Sample Exam, available from http://www.ttuhsc.edu/som/fammed/ttmedcast/gerseri....

Educational objectives: 

The second-year medical student studying for the Step2CK exam should be able to:

  • Distinguish between different skin lesions commonly presenting in elderly patients by physical exam findings and patient history
  • Differentiate between a premalignant and malignant epidermal tumor
  • List risk factors leading to certain skin lesions in the elderly
