About USMLE Step 2 CS Exam

Step 2 Clinical Skills (USMLE 2 CS)is an exam administered to medical students/graduates who wish to become licensed physicians in the U.S.

The USMLE Step 2CS exam consists of a series of patient encounters in which the examinee must see standardized patients (SPs), take a history, do a physical examination, determine differential diagnoses, and then write a patient note based on their determinations. The topics covered are common outpatient or Emergency Room visits which are encountered in the fields of internal medicine, surgery, psychiatry, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology. Examinees are expected to investigate the simulated patient’s chief complaint, as well as obtain a thorough assessment of their past medical history, medications, allergies, social history (including alcohol, tobacco, drug use, sexual practices, etc.), and family history.

The test is graded on a pass/fail basis, without any score associated with it. Examinees are scored on three separate subcomponents:

  • Communication andInterpersonal Skills (CIS)
  • Spoken English Proficiency (SEP)
  • Integrated Clinical Encounter (ICE)
