February 24, 2017 Matthew Callahan Cuba February 24, 2017 Matthew Callahan Dear Anna Lank,I took Step 2CS, just 2 months after the C3NY workshop (2006), and I passed the exam, but importantly, I felt very comfortable during the exam.The C3NY was a very rewarding experience for me, and it was a positive turning positive point in building my confidence to practice medicine in the USA. Here’s a little history about me. I graduated in 1984 from a Cuban medical school. I practiced clinical medicine for 10 years and after that I only did research (Ph.D., post Doc, faculty work) in Spain and USA for almost 15 years. I was very dubitative about coming back to clinical work, but Dr. Swartz’s lectures changed my life and woke up my clinical spirit.I’m a PGY3 now, very happy with my new life as a clinician in the USA. Moreover, I have a daughter (age 3 years), 1 son (1 year) in medical school and one will start pre-med soon. My gift to them will be to pay for their C3NY workshop.All of the best for you and Dr. Swartz!Thanks again for your help. — Cesar A. Santana, M.D., Cuba Hello Ms. Lank,This is Yandy Chang.
