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.
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.
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 to pass. As of February 2016, only 78% of the first-time takers passed and only 71% of the repeat takers passed. Those statistics are even worse for Foreign Graduates. As of September 10th 2017 the approximate pass rate for first time takers will be about 69%. We have adapted the content in our workshops to meet the requirements of the “New Changes”. We have increased the area of ICE to give you more time to practice your Physical Exam Skills using Standardized Patients in individual practice rooms this will allow you to master your skills. We have also made additional adjustments in the ICE component involving the Patient Note exercises.
It won't be easy, but with our Step 2 CS preparation 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.
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 preparation, 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.
