Our convenient remote coaching sessions enable you to receive quality education without the need to travel!

Our experience shows that the best way to prepare for your USMLE Step 2 CS exam work with qualified standardized patients in person. However, if it is not possible for you to do so, we can still help you succeed on your Step 2 CS exam with our unique Skype Coaching Program. This program is also available for our workshop participants who want additional practice after the workshop ends. 

Our Skype Coaching Sessions are led by qualified SP/Medical Educators who have extensive experience in teaching communication skills, history taking, and physical examination skills, and who have logged many, many hours evaluating and preparing students to take the USMLE Step 2 CS exam. They have worked with us at C3NY, at our affiliate institutions, including the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and SUNY Downstate College of Medicine, and at many other institutions as well. We require the SP/Medical Educators who lead our Skype Sessions to have worked with C3NY for a minimum of five years before being eligible to work as Skype Coach.

How it Works: 

Each Skype Coaching Session is tailored to your individual needs. Together, you and your coach will design the training to help you work on the areas that you'd like to improve. Your coach will assess your skills in a demo case, offer feedback, and then work with you on areas that require improvement. You may schedule one 2-hour session or two 1-hour sessions, or more, to be arranged with your coach. Requests for sessions must be made at least three business days in advance of when the sessions are wanted.

In the past, students have used our Skype Coaching Sessions to improve: 

  • Data gathering and data sharing skills

  • Patient-centered interviewing skills

  • Demonstrating empathy

  • Opening and closure of the interview

  • CIS and ICE weaknesses

The Skype sessions honed the skills which I received from the in class sessions. They pointed me in the appropriate direction – letting the patient be in control of interview time (patient centered interview). They also provided me with a little apprehension of what I was going to face during CS. I took the lessons learned from the sessions and applied them with some discomfort. But it worked!! I passed!! Thanks very much for all your help. I know I would not approach the CS the way I did if not instructed by C3NY program and reinforced by the Skype sessions.
