Michigan Votes to Oppose Step 2 CS

Last weekend, the Michigan State Medical Society voted in favor of our resolution advocating for a replacement of Step 2 CS with a clinical skills exam at each medical school. This is a great achievement, demonstrating that students and physicians alike support our movement and feel strongly that Step 2 CS is costly, burdensome, and unnecessary. Thanks to all the hard work of our team members in Michigan who worked to get this passed!

Help us pass a resolution in your state!

If you are involved with your state medical society, we need your help to pass a resolution urging your state's medical licensing board to eliminate the requirement for Step 2 CS. Our advocacy team has already drafted a RESOLUTION TEMPLATE for you to download and use. Please contact us if you have questions.

Support our AMA Resolution

Working with the Medical Student Section, we have introduced an AMA resolution resolving:

That our AMA work with the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and state medical boards to advocate for elimination of the USMLE Step 2 CS and the COMLEX Level 2-PE as a requirement for LCME-accredited and COCA-accredited medical school graduates who have passed a school-administered, clinical skills examination

You can help by asking your state delegation to co-sponsor our AMA resolution. Again, contact us if you have any questions.
