USMLE® Step 2 CS
The USMLE® Step 2 CS (Clinical Skills) exam tests your interpersonal and clinical skills using standardized patients to assess your ability to gather information from patients, perform relevant physical examinations, and communicate your results to patients and colleagues. The USMLE® Step 2 CS examination is a full-day assessment of your clinical skills and your ability to care for, and communicate with patients. The best way to understand the exam, and your exam readiness, is to complete an assessment in a simulated exam environment, with standardized patients.
Becker Professional Education has enhanced the Step 2 CS program to offer exam preparation in a two-part approach:
- GuideMD: Advanced Interactive Learning: Becker is now offering a guided learning resource option for students, providing the flexibility to study for the exam anywhere and at your own pace.
- Becker’s USMLE® Step 2 CS Assessment: This live program offers you the ability to complete a half-length simulated exam to experience the exam environment.
