  • Standardized Patients
    • The standardized patients (SPs) at NYCSPREP are not just actors, but professional standardized patients who will challenge you with tough cases
    • Collectively, NYCSPREP’s standardized patients have spent thousands of hours coaching students for the Step 2 CS exam. They are well-versed in the test format and know what you will be graded on
    • After every practice session with an SP, you will receive one-on-one detailed feedback for improvement
