Join the national movement to End Step 2 CS
In 2004, the US Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) was expanded to include a clinical skills assessment -- Step 2 CS. A similar exam had previously been administered only to foreign medical graduates, but since the change all graduates of US medical schools are required to pass the exam prior to obtaining a medical license. We strongly believe eliminating the national clinical skills exam for US medical graduates reduces unnecessary costs in the education process without negatively affecting patient care.

We fourth year med students may have already taken Step 2 CS, but we need to #PayItForward and End Step 2 CS for future generations of aspiring physicians.
