The USMLE Step 2 CS is probably the most neglected examination in the USMLE. It is usually taken as an afterthought, with very little preparation taken before the exam. And in relation to the other bigger exams, Step 1, Step 2 CK and Step 3, maybe it is not as “important”.

Unlike its bigger cousins, USMLE Step 2 CS is a pass/fail exam. So performing really wells serves no other purpose than to feel good about yourself. Of course, over preparing can also insure that there is no chance you will fail. However, it is important to realize that although USMLE Step 2 CS is relatively simple, if you are unfamiliar with the methodology of the exam you can fail. For most AMGs this is not a problem since simulated patient exams are part of their normal curriculum. However, for most IMG’s it is a rather novel experience.

Therefore, the key to doing well in the Step 2 CS exam is to be so familiar with the methods that it becomes second nature to you. This includes doing a relevant medical interview, performing a focused physical examination and writing a legible and coherent patient note. All under time pressure. You also need to dress, act and speak in a professional manner. And all this takes practice.

The most important thing in preparing for Step 2 CS is practice. Practice, practice and more practice. Askdoc’s USMLE prep course currently consists of 30 practice cases that you can use to sharpen your mastery of the methods. An additional 30 cases will be finished in the next few days to bring the total number of cases you can practice on to 60.

You can use the course as a stand alone course for the USMLE Step 2 CS, or you can make use of the cases as additional practice if you are currently in another program. The price for 30 days access is reasonable at US$ 19.95. It is currently available at an introductory price of US$ 14.95 until June 30. If you want to check out sample cases you can go to the website and click on the sample cases section. You do not need to register to access the sample cases. If you want to enroll, you need to register first, then click on the course and enroll. You can pay for it via PayPal.

    Dear askdoc,
    I have failed CS before, I was scared to death already. Now, I heard the news regarding the newly changed and updated CS; I even freaked out more. Please let me know if I signed up and study w/ askdoc. CS, will it be the newly updated style? this is still so new, so I do not know if other students have experienced w/ it yet and how was it different w/ the old CS. I did not even understand when I read about the changed from ECFMG website. The other q’s I have is that is it worth to sign up for CS at certain center ex. in NY called NY3C…etc.
    Thank you.

    Hi Jimmy,

    Sorry, my course has not yet been updated to reflect the new and updated CS although I am currently revising it. Will announce it once it’s been revised. That said, even with the revision, it is still basically the same test. You have to be more succinct due to the limited space for notes. You may have to practice typing faster. You just have to document the reason for your differentials, which you have to have in order to come up with the differentials in the first place. Otherwise, it’s basically the same exam. And it’s still practice, practice, practice. I cannot evaluate the CS centers as I currently have no information on their actual pass rate for the new CS.
