NYCSPREP USMLE STEP 2 CS WORKSHOP
Which package should I choose?
Standard Package - This package will be a 3 day session. The first 2 days covers all components of the Step 2 CS, and the 3rd day- you will get to take a Mock test with 6 cases. You will get a feedback from our professional SPs, patient note review by MDs, and a Comprehensive Performance Report- which will detail your strengths and weaknessess. You will be able to practice at the center for 2 weeks, with other students or hire SPs and have your Patient notes reviewed by MDs. You will get a labcoat.
Premium Package - MOST POPULAR PACKAGE. Standard plus unlimited excess to the center, and an additional 12 cases Mock test ( so for a total of 18 Mock test cases). This 2nd mock, with a completely seperate set of cases, can be taken at a date closer to your actual test.
Mock Test - This 12 case Mock test, is held only on Sundays. You should take this Mock test, only if you believe you are adequately prepared for the test. You should use this as a diagnostic test for your CS test. If you have failed before, or are unsure of the standards expected of you, we would STRONGLY, suggest that you take our Standard or Premium packages.
How much preparation do I have to do, BEFORE taking your course?
You do not have to prepare for the CS before coming to the course. We suggest that you come with an open mind, and a willingness to learn. It usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks of intense prep to be ready for the test. You might want to brush up on your typing skills.
How long do I need AFTER the course?
Although we have had students taking the exam within the week after the course, it usually takes about 2-3 weeks after the course to prepare for the exam. Remember that the new format demands more precise history taking, physical exam and a well written Patient Notes, & practice makes perfect.
What is your passing rate?
We have taught over 4000 students since we started in 2009, and we have a 97 % pass rate.
What is your Comprehensive Perfomance Report (CPR)?
Our CPR is a detailed report, outlining your performances in all the components of the CS test - CIS, ICE and SEP. We are conducting ongoing statictical studies to predict how our CPR will reflect your performances in the real CS Test.
Where is the course conducted?
The course is conducted at both Touro College of Medicine (230 West 125th Street, NY 10026) on the first day and from the 2nd day onwards at our NYCSPREP Center of Clinical excellence (1970 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd, NY 10026).
