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 an exam-like setting with real standardized patients.

  • GuideMD: Advanced Interactive Learning: Becker is now offering a guided learning resource option for students as it provides you the flexibility to study for the Exam at your own pace.

How Becker Helped Me Succeed

“Reviewing for the USMLE Step 1 is a cumbersome task. Let alone with all the commercial packages now available on the market, it can be incredibly daunting. I wanted a program that was able to provide me with a full glimpse of exam material and interrelated topics, just as the USMLE has historically been known to be.  Becker was my solution! From their concept reviews, interrelations, and dynamic instructors.”
