I think you might have to do it the other way around lol. Goljan is significantly more detailed than Pathoma. Pathoma gives you only the high-yield stuff for Step 1, which is sufficient for the exam form what I've heard.

Goljan, however, intended his book for both Step 1 and Step 2 (he even says it at the beginning of the book), so the level of detail is far greater than in Pathoma.

I have both Pathoma and Goljan, and use both, and I can personally attest to this.

Personally, I find that just straight up reading through Goljan as a first run through Pathology is very heavy and hard to get through. What has made it easier for me was watching Pathoma (annotating the book with what Dr. Sattar says and whatnot) and then reading through Goljan.

This method, although possibly time consuming, has the advantage of removing some of the detail burden when going through Goljan.

This.

Although I find Pathoma videos and book enough for Step 1, but if you want and have the time for it, go ahead and read Goljan after Pathoma

Pathoma was always enough for Step 1. The fact that you have enough pathology in your head for Step 2 is only going to make it easier to remember Pathoma.

The pathoma videos are meant to be the primary source for the info, and the book there as something to annotate info in. In the videos, Dr. Sattar often discusses ideas and gives examples/background not included in the book. So you might want to watch the videos and annotate in your book as you go along.
