The Mission of  Ximedus is to prepare United States Medical Students and International Medical Graduates (IMG's) for the USMLE® STEP 2 CS Examination.  We focus on Communication and Interpersonal Skills, Spoken English Proficiency, the Patient Note, Physical examination skills, and History-taking skills.

Our medical/teaching faculty have over 40 years of combined experience in medicine and medical education and our  pass rate exceeds 99%. No other program offers the formula for success by combining the following elements… USMLE® step 2 cs history-taking, USMLE® step 2 cs physical exam, and USMLE® step 2 cs patient note.

At Ximedus, we understand the needs and concerns of our students, and so we keep our class sizes small less than 13 students per workshop which gives individual attention to each student, maintain a safe and supportive learning environment. We assist our students with transportation (to and from lodging and the airport), which is complimentary.

Ximedus, Inc. maintains a variety of workshops to address the specific needs of each student; we are currently offering 1-Day, 3-Day, and two 5-Day Workshops and a 1/2 Day Online Examination, each with a different emphasis.

Every year thousands of doctors take and fail the USMLE® Step 2 CS examination.  Recently, the Step 2 CS examination has morphed into a much more demanding exam, causing many students difficulty.  From July 2013 through June 2014, only 74% of the first-time takers passed and only 66% of the repeat takers passed.  Those statistics are even worse for Foreign Citizens.  It won't be easy, but you can PASS the USMLE® Step 2 CS examination and move on to securing a Residency position.  Ximedus was developed by Physicians nine years ago in a University setting and later transitioned into the private sector.  We have helped thousands of doctors successfully pass their Step 2 CS examination.

There are no other USMLE® Step 2 CS workshops able to compete with our high level of individualized attention and the quality of our instruction.  We teach all aspects of the test, including:  History-taking skill, Communication skills, Empathy, Spoken English Components, Physical Exam Skills, Time Management, and the Patient Note.

What is the USMLE® Step 2 CS Examination?

USMLE® Step 2 CS
assesses whether you can apply medical knowledge, skills, and understanding of clinical science essential for the provision of patient care under supervision and includes emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention. Step 2  CS ensures that due attention is devoted to principles of clinical sciences and basic patient-centered skills that provide the foundation for the safe and competent practice of medicine.

Step 2 CS uses standardized patients, i.e., people trained to portray real patients. The cases cover common and important situations that a physician is likely to encounter in clinics, doctors’ offices, emergency departments, and hospital settings in the United States.
