I am still a medical student and I don't that great experience in reading EKGs and I heard that Step 1 does show up some EKGs in the exam!! :confused:

Is that true?

Please for those of you who have taken the exam tell me if there were EKGs in your exams.

Thanks in advance

According to our teacher
There are EKGs in Step 1 but they are usually straight forward EKGs such as a heart block or and AF and the question will be something about the cardiac physiology and not clinical.
So you need to see few essential EKGs and then you'd be ready.
For step 2 though, you have to be an expert EKG reader.
