Hey guys! Just wanted to pop on here quickly and give you all an update. I finished third year (woohoo!) and did well on my Internal Medicine rotation (double woohoo!). Now it’s time for me to buckle down and study for Step 2.
For those of you who may not know, Step 2 is the second exam of three for the United States Medical Licensing Exam. Step 1 is usually taken before third year, Step 2 is taken before fourth year, and Step 3 is taken sometime after graduation and during intern year. Step 2 has two parts, Clinical Skills and Clinical Knowledge, both of which I am studying for! Step 2 is not as important as Step 1 but students still want to score well since it shows up on residency applications. You definitely do not want to take this exam lightly!
