Star Free patient note eval. From enrollment

Integrity usmle course is a program that uses standardized patients to simulate clinical cases for familiarizing medical students and doctors with the feel of step2 CS exam.
2 MOST IMPORTANT REASONS WE OFFER A UNIQUE TRAINING COURSE:

1. We adopt a pre-workshop approach, once you register with Iusmle Course. We begin training you straightaway. We send you a copy of HIGH YIELD CASES. Designed to be studied and compose a Patient Note that would be sent to us for evaluation and feedback. In that way we could get you a bit prepared even before your LIVE Workshop.
2. We don't leave our students with just the SP's. Our MD's directly train and observe all our students during your Clinical mock exams.

WHY IUSMLE STEP 2 CS?
CLASS SIZE
Small class sizes to enable us give more personalized focus and individualized attention to the students

TEACHING STYLE
We adopt a practical more interactive teaching style with proven results and keep you totally engaged, eager to learn
Compared to the generic PowerPoint prototype: we adopt unique teaching style whereby we use practical interactive approach
the MD’s and the students would basically sit down and discuss the cases
- How the students view the cases
- How they would present each section on the exam
- The students would practice with an SP and receive feedback

TEACHING GOALS
Designed for students dedicated on passing on the first attempt and guaranteed passing for resits

CURRICULUM
Most up-to-date to the main Step 2 CS exam
We always updating our Step 2 materials to reflect the changes on the USMLE CS exam.
The current changes on the exam requires the use of Tablets and Imaging Devices to derive your differential diagnosis at least in one clinical encounter. We are already preparing our students on this changes and started with our MAY 2016 event.

COST/PRICES
Most Affordable Step 2 CS Live Review- our prices are designed very considerate to be affordable for an average medical student.
Our mission is to make this training course very affordable to the average medical student, so that they have access to the best Step 2 CS program at a reasonable rate

The 3 components on the grading system of the Step 2 CS exam: ICE, CIS, AND SEP

ICE: Very detailed Patient note evaluation with expanded feedback and focused physical exam technique

Physical exam technique training: we train you on focused precise physical exam that will enable you score high on the exam and safe time for counseling and closing encounter

CIS: We use a standard checklist that mirrors Step 2 CS in every form. We give clear, honest feedback based on case encounters, vitals CIS tips “Fake it till you become it’’
We adopt the most effective checklist that mirrors the Step 2 CS scoring system. We use a-45 point-checklist.
SEP: Most of our SP's are native speakers. We also have 1 on 1 spoken English Training Classes designed to improve your SEP in days

QUALIFICATIONS: Classes are taught by well experienced MD’S. Mostly US/Caribbean trained MD’S at the moment
We have about 4 MD’s, a family practitioner, +30 yrs experience, an emergency doctor +15 years experience, the other, an internal medicine doctor for the past 2 decades in the US, and the others, very Step 2 CS-oriented and have been practicing with ‘real patients’ and teaching USMLE CS students for more than 2 years.


“Every student has the potential to pass this exam with or without US clinical rotations on the first attempt”, it all depends on your motivation, training (training by Step 2 CS- oriented MD’s), and importantly on practicing the right materials.
Good luck to everyone and those heading to New York For our July 11th Classes!
Your Success Is Our Success Story!

Default My Step 2 CS experience:Live course

Hey guys this is a quick video to show a patient note entry for step 2 CS purposes
No talking because my keyboard sounds gets annoying, so enjoy
We will use one of the mock exam cases for iusmle course, just to give you a lilly overview about the case

This course is a must do, really helped me greatly. Very hands-on review course. It was all I needed to know my weaknesses and learn how to overcome them. I was initially skeptical since this program wasn't that popular but it was recommended by someone and I was already benefitting from the online patient note eval. During the workshop, after 2 hours, I started practicing with their american SP's and got feedback from both the MD, SP's and other students. I was practicing with my friends before this live course but it was at time program I got real honest feedback. I'm only sharing my personal experience, if you plan on having real hands-on practice with very experienced MD's & SP's help you improve within the same day in some cases, you got it here.
Anyone can contact me with more of my exam experience in Philly.

Default Excellent CS Review

Hi,
I'm Dr Ken, I was in your CS prep in New York and is no jokes, very hands-on and marathon CS training. Honestly nothing would have made me ready to do fantastic on my Step 2 CS within such a short time than iusmle cs. Strong work!

Default My best bet for Step 2 CS

Hi everyone,
I took the Iusmle Live Prep and had an awesome experience. First 3 hours into the course, I was already handling a case with an SP. I was initially nervous because the entire team and my colleagues were watching me but I love the approach, very crucial feedback that helped my prep. I left that program more confident and got all the basic informations that excelled me on my CS exam. So if you're looking for the real stuff, not advertising or even trying to mess around, just go for their Live Course and you would absolutely recommend them too.

Default CS Passed too!

Congratulations to you Docmary, I took in Atlanta and passed too.
I was really worried about my result, made some stupid mistakes. I'm so grateful, I ONLY PREP for like 20 days and would say big thanks to my friends that were my reliable SP's, FA book, Iusmle cs course. Iusmle live course helped me boost my courage, gave me lots of practice with live american SP's and my mock exam was a good feel of my exam overall, so I recommend your course along with dedicated FA studies (long & mini-cases). Is very doable, believe me, thanks!!

Hi Drodago, we have checked all our records and unfortunately can't find any information. Please if you're honest and had failed with us which I highly doubt provide more details right here for everyone to see. You stated the instructor was rude and never present, just don't make sense. We have 8-10 qualified SP's and they come according to the number of student's present, besides we can use only one SP for the training to let our student's practice. On mock exam you have as many SP' as they are students, so your content lacks facts.
When did you attend our workshop, where, when was your exam and result.
Prove your case or just don't come to distract our work or just be honest in case you got paid to run us down, I'm sorry won't work. We keep in touch with our students and don't have failure records. Present your registration code and more details, thank you

Hi Drodapo, I usually don't like putting my stuff on forum or online but I want to state some facts here. I took iusmle live course and passed with high performance in both ICE & CIS. I feel they got the best structure, excellent note and got great opportunity to practice lots of cases, which from my friends that went for some other program, not even close to what I experienced. I had them follow-up with me on my progression and patient note till my exam.
On my exam, I took in Philly, I had a close experience to the mock exam.
Bottomline I passed and going for residency 2017, (fingers crossed). I also had 3 MD's during our training and none was this RUDE from your post. They were friendly and each related to me and others with utmost respect and kindness.
I'm working on taking my Step 3 before residency application and you should plan on advancing your career, because what you described sounded totally different from what I saw in their live course, can't just believe your stuff.

Hi Drodapo, I usually don't like putting my stuff on forum or online but I want to state some facts here, I had to create an account after seeing your post. I took iusmle live course and passed with high performance in all 3. I feel that what I witnessed was a program with the best CS structure, excellent note and gave me great opportunity to practice lots of cases, which I can’t do the comparison with other programs because this is the only one I had attended. I had them follow-up with me on my prep and patient note till my exam.
On my exam, I took in Philly, I had a close experience to the mock exam.
Bottomline I passed and going for IM residency, (fingers crossed). I also had 3 MD's during our training and none was this ‘RUDE' from your post.
They were friendly and each related to me and others with utmost respect and kindness. I mean very friendly and professionally.
I'm working on taking my Step 3 before residency application and I think you should be working on something positive( If you indeed a medical student) , because what you described sounded totally different from what I saw in their live course, can't just believe your stuff.

I feel sorry because your story really sounds so pathetic. Once again identify yourself here so that everyone can bear witness. What's your REG CODE (this what we use to track the progress of our student's), when did you attend our workshop, who was rude to you, when was your result, can you state the name of anyone that attended with you same time?.
This is because none of your story could well describe us or what we do. All our students that recently received their results passed and we have been delighted.We consistently follow-up with every of our student till their results. So I can't even apologize to you because your just not true and mind you this is a professional forum and as such please don't trick nobody with your poorly cooked-up, sham story.
And you want to set up a meeting, did you send us an email, or given us a call with your experience. I'm deeply sorry you were never our student and simply an imposter.

Default I did Iusmle & performed fantastic

I did Iusmle and performed super fantastic on my exam. I saw firsthand how a 3-days intensive training could be a game changer for me. Keep doing what your doing, your team were respectful, very caring, knowledgeable and highly recommended, soon everyone would discover you offer an amazing program with passion for your student's success, thank you Integrity!

ALL OF YOUR IMAGES ON FACEBOOK ARE STOCK IMAGES THEY ARE NOT REAL PEOPLE. THIS IS A FAKE PROGRAM
I'm Dr Ken, I just wish to give you my personal opinion, if you had a training agreement with this course and you failed or not satisfied why not directly contact the program than acting like. I personally respect this forum and currently here for my step 3 but I have never seen this recklessness. I did Iusmle for my Step 2 CS and used their online patient note and had a great experience. If I have to do a live course over, it would still be Iusmle cs course. You really don't sound like a medical student or physician, not sure what country you practiced or studied but you sound immature and not realistic. The other time you were saying about you'll bring your Dad to go get your refund, sincerely not sure how old you're but something is totally off with your whole stuff.
I did IUSMLE COURSE AND ONLINE PATIENT NOTE AND WAS MY BEST DECISION FOR MY STEP 2 CS

i was better off just reading FA and working with my friends than taking this waste of time class run by international people,

So I personally think the coordinator of this course haved tried to address your issue professionally. I never knew that when you fail you have to hold the prep course responsible. Correct me if I'm wrong. So after I do great on uword assessment and if eventually I don't pass or do well on the main exam, then I have to blame uworld for offering me a crappy Qbank. Nobody got the powers to pass you on this test, not Step 2 CS. So accept you failed by your own fault, so it helps you do better next time.
Therefore I think instead of crying everywhere, you should take responsibility for your failure. I attended this program and many others before me and all I can say is excellent, very practical, focussed on high yields, the MD's are well spoken, super knowleadgeable and very nice team of professionals. And in all fairness I doubt if I could have done splendid on my test without their help. So you have to accept your failure and plan for the future or contact them directly
