Question Why did I fail CS?


I am an IMG

I did CS in 2011

and I failed

the reason of my failure is lack of communication skills

So can you explain in detail why did I fail?

I forgot to call 3 patients by their name

I never did counseling for alcohol smoking or sex practice

I told the grandmother of a child if she is her mother and she was upset

I never asked if the patient has any questions

So are these the reasons of my failure or are there other reasons for communication skills-failure?

Default Take a live course

It's difficult to tell exactly what made you fail the communication part of the CS exam.

My best advice for you is that if you are planning to do the CS again then you need to take a live CS course and here's the link to choose;
Best USMLE Step 2 CS Live Course

These people will tell you your mistakes one by one so that you can correct them so that you can pass.
