Smile New Step 2 CS Performance Standard and USCE

Hi everyone,

Is hands-on USCE more important than ever before as the new performance standard of the Step 2 CS examination take affect?

What do you think?

"The Step 2 Committee decided to increase the performance levels required to receive a passing outcome on two of the three Step 2 CS subcomponents: Communication and Interpersonal Skills (CIS) and Integrated Clinical Encounter (ICE). There will be no change to minimum passing requirements for the Spoken English Proficiency (SEP) subcomponent of Step 2 CS at this time."
