Drug Do we need to memorize the drug dosages for the CK exam?

Arrow You don't need

It's extremely rare that you'll face a question in the USMLE exam that asks you about a specific drug dosage.

If at all, just be familiar with the super important drugs used in life support such as epinephrine and atropin in cardiac arrest. Other than that they don't ask you such info.

I heard Dr. Conrad Fischer once saying:
"Don't memorized the doses. However; memorize the route of administration"
