Step 2 CS – How to Pass

Step 2 CS – How to Pass

 

By Law2Doc of SDN:

That’s probably true to some extent but since most people pass and it’s a small minority who don’t, I still think what the folks who pass all three sections tend to have in common is a bit more polish in terms of dialoguing with patients. Being difficult to understand in english is a hurdle for folks. Not giving the SP a feeling that they are being seen by a real doctor who cares about their health (whether sincere or well faked) also makes a difference. The SPs really do seem to respond to you treating them as if they were the real deal, and certainly you need to do the nicities like handwashing and draping to pass this sucker. The folks running through mnemonics in their heads all too often won’t come off polished — they will come off wooden — trying to remember things throughout the history and all too often won’t come off as conversational — and in actuality the showmanship is everything here IMHO.

You don’t have to BE competent, you have to SEEM competent. I think you’d be better off with huge knowledge gaps (without the mnemonics) but make the SP think you were confidently treating them just like a real life patient. This test is not really about medical knowledge — the CK is for that. This is to show how you are as a clinician — it’s mostly a test on form, not substance. Which I think is what infuriates med students — you can’t study for it so much you can only learn it by developing a style while practicing.
