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 2011 Step1 Sample Exam, available from http://www.ttuhsc.edu/som/fammed/ttmedcast/gerseries/gerstep1prep.aspx.

Educational objectives: 

 The second-year medical student studying for the Step 1 exam should be able to:

  • Identify gentamicin as an aminoglycoside
  • Identify the two most common side effects of aminoglycosides
  • Explore side effects which are NOT typically associated with gentamicin
  • Become familiar with a typical presentation of bacterial endocarditis in a geriatric patient
