A comprehensive and interactive workshop on history taking and communication skills conducted by Mark H. Swartz, M.D., geared specifically to the Step 2 CS exam, covering exactly what questions to ask and how to ask them. We present a thorough explanation of the exam itself, and videos of real SP encounters are shown.
The second day of the workshop continues the skills learned on Day One with an added emphasis on physical examination techniques, as well as a detailed dialogue examining the structure and development of a specific SP case, and the ideas behind the development of SP cases. Optional Physical Exam Practicum.
The culmination of the three day workshop, offering a practical, hands-on experience interviewing a standardized patient; observation and discussion of up to 13 SP cases; timed practice typing two patient notes on the computer, using the exact USMLE Step 2 CS template; and in-depth discussions of all patient notes.
