Exam Facts

Step 2 CS assesses clinical skills essential for safe and effective patient care. It involves 12 simulated patient interactions with actors trained to behave in a standardized way. There are three subcomponents of Step 2 CS. The first is Integrated Clinical Encounter, which includes data gathering (collecting information from taking histories and by analyzing physical examinations and documentation), completion of patient notes summarizing the findings of the patient encounter, diagnostic impression, and initial patient work-up. The second subcomponent is Communication and Interpersonal Skills, in which questioning skills, information-sharing skills, and professional manner and rapport are reviewed. The third subcomponent is Spoken English Proficiency which measures the clarity of communication within the doctor-patient context.

Step 2 CS is only offered in five cities across the United States: Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, and Los Angeles.
