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!
I always do better when I’m 100% focused on something, so I’ll be taking a hiatus from this blog. After the exam, I’ll be dedicating my time to research before fourth year begins so I will not be applying for residency this fall. (More on that in another blog post).
Once this Step 2 exam is done, my goal is to post more here – not just about my journey in medicine but also lifestyle content, which was this was originally intended for! Very excited to see how things go in this upcoming year. Thank you guys all for following along!
Talk to you guys soon 🙂
