Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) is a significant component of medical students' residency application that is often found to be a stressful test to prepare for. The Family Medicine Interest Group suggested a review course for third-year students. The students submitted questions and topics for review. Faculty and residents from the FM department held a review course in small groups. The students' perceptions of the course were assessed after taking Step 2 CS via an online survey.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Address students' concerns about Step 2 CS.
  2. formulate a review course for students prior to taking Step 2 CS.
  3. improve students' preparedness for Step 2 CS.
