USMLE STEP 2 CS RELAUNCH – 3 KEY PRIORITIES TO BE TESTED

The USMLE has given the following announcement that the USMLE step 2 CS exam will be returning in early 2021. Over the summer they collected an initial community feedback to help for the exam future development. This involved focus group discussions and a fairly large survey from stake holders which included State Board members, faculty of medical schools, medical students, residents, international medical graduates and residency program directors. They plan to retain the valuable inputs and address any concerns wherever feasible. Valued assets of stake holders on step 2 CS exam were on reliable scoring, standardization of SP performance across sites, clinical skillsets being assessed and how relevant they are to clinical practice, professional smooth operation of test administrations. There was a broad agreement among all stake holder group that this type of assessment is relevant and important. The concerns were on the limited number of test sites, examinees travel away from home, especially the impact for IMGs outside the country to test at one of the 6 clinical sites across the US. Other challenges were the cost of the exam, perception of the artificial nature of the Standardized patient interaction and the patient note. This announcement has been much awaited by students applying for the 2022 Match.

3 Key priorities for the New Step 2 CS exam in 2021

1. Can an examinee conduct an effective clinical interview? Can they obtain the right information?

2. Can they communicate that information effectively to patients and other members of the health care team

3. Can they reason effectively so they can take the most appropriate steps in patient care.

So it comes down to obtaining the right information, communicating effectively and reasoning effectively with the information that they have obtained. These are components that have been important in the prior administrations of the exam as well which come under the ICE component of data gathering and patient notes, CIS & SEP skills, which used to be the most failed component. GoldUSMLE has been training students for the past decade with a 97% pass rate with a mission of helping medical students to prepare with a personalized CCC course and pass it the first time around.

USMLE REVITALIZES CLINICAL SKILLS ASSESSMENT IN 3 PHASES

3 Phases of the  relaunch of step 2 CS are listed below

Discovery – this phase has been completed which includes the licensing needs assessment, prioritization stakeholder input)

Design – This phase includes developing content, delivery of the exam , feedback and scoring which is currently in progress

Implementation – Training, pretest, pilot studies will be conduct in this phase.

They conceded to the fact they are very much aware of the 2022 NRMP match timelines, ECFMG certifications and Step 3 timelines and will relaunch Step 2 CS at a time that balances these many factors.

THE NEW STEP 2 CS 2021- WHAT WILL BE DIFFERENT?

We will be following a Telehealth video conferencing model for those that are overseas and  offering a different option for those that are able to travel to our facility. We will be offering another option of LIVE CENTER PREP COURSE MODEL WITH LIVE STANDARDIZED PATIENTS at our USMLE CENTER IN HOUSTON.  We will also be offering a Hybrid model which offers both online live video cases and live in person standardized patients. The STEP2 CS workshop  will be running both online on our network and live in person at our CENTER PREP facility in Houston. WE WILL OFFER ONLINE LIVE TELEHEALTH PRACTICE EXAMS AND LIVE CENTER PREP in our 20 different medical exam rooms in a 6,500 square foot medical facility in Houston, Texas and a 5,200 square foot facility in Atlanta, GA. We will be sending video links to login to our portal if you are registered for the online class.  We will also be having live Standardized Patients available at the center with protective gear, n95 masks and gloves. This hybrid approach will prepare students for both types of examinations.
