Interesting link - medical guidemaps

That is a very useful for USMLE Step 2 CK preparation.

Here is the desceription from the owner:

I started this new website in March 2005.

Its main purpose is to host my soapbox essays. My soapbox essays are critical essays that are mainly focused on reviewing/analysing randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in order to demonstrate weaknesses/flaws in the design and interpretation of RCTs. My latest essays are at the top of the list. My oldest essays are at the the bottom of the list — some of them express opinions which I no longer hold, or opinions which reflect my limited EBM knowledge of earlier years.

I have also decided to host my medical guidemaps on this website. Please note that i) I am retired and I am no longer practicing clinical medicine and ii) I am no longer revising the guidemaps. Therefore, the guidemaps should be perceived to be outdated. I personally suspect that my neuro-ophthalmology guidemaps will remain clinically relevant, even though I am no longer updating those guidemaps.

Government Motors

I know this is not strictly related to USMLE... but I have read today that General Motors is bankrupt and people renamed it to Government motors.

The Government Motors started by selling the Hummer brand to unnamed buyer...

Do you know what will happen with General Motors after it have filed the Chapter 11
