What's up everybody?

What's the big deal about Step 2 CS? I am american born IMG, just took Step 1 almost 4 days ago (hope I did well, every day I question that more) and am now wondering, what's next? I want to apply for the upcoming match but I realize I really have to hustle.

So... Step 2 CS... if you were to summerize it in one sentence, what would you say?

How bad do you need to hurry for CK? I think Step 1 was a fair test. I'm not the smartest, but score above average usually (on board simmulation stuff).

All I know about Step 2 CS is that you have to be all curious and act caring to a simulated patient. What format do you have to write the report in?

American born IMGs usually have no problem in the language part of the CS. Which is a great advantage on your side.

Summarizing CS in one sentence " It's a game played by you and the SP where you should go by the rules mentioned in First Aid!"

CK or CS first? See this thread
