Insider’s Look at USMLE Step 2

Posted by medliorator on March 30, 2009

This practical exam is comprised of a rapid-fire history and physical of 12 actors pretending to have various, common medical problems, with subsequent documentation of the encounters.

this exam costs over $1000 for medical students to take.  Moreover, there are only 5 centers around the US where students can take the exam, so if you don’t live nearby you also have to pay for transportation and an overnight hotel stay.

Having taken the exam now, I can tell you that anyone who even performed sufficient motions to get through medical school should be able to pass this exam.
