USMLE Step 2 CS Live Workshop

At Delphi, we have one goal: To help US medical students and IMGs, to pass the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) and earn their Medical License. Passing the USMLE Step 2 CS examination on the first attempt is crucial for Residency Programs to even consider your application with an increasing demand/difficulty for Matching.

Thousands of students take the USMLE Step 2 CS examination and fail every year. As of Septemeber 2017, the USMLE organization has increased the minimum requirement for passing, and as a result has made this exam even more challenging to students.

A recent study has found, that half of the students who have failed their USMLE Step 2 CS examination did not take a prep course before the exam in order to save money. It is regrettable to hear that students tried to save a small portion after investing a massive amount of money, time, and energy in their medical education to achieve their dream. One wrong move can change the entire outcome when it comes to a career in medicine.

Detailed preparation is the key to success for the USMLE Step2 CS examination. Other prep centers use standard, generic material and use it with every student regardless of their individual needs. This is where Delphi makes the difference! We focus on our student’s individual needs. We don't prepare them with what we have; We prepare them with what they need.

At Delphi we offer a Live USMLE Step 2 CS preparation course, that is taught by experienced physicians, with over 99% passing rate. With Delphi’s foolproof method of teaching, individualized learning, and 1–on-1 attention, we genuinely believe that we can make their dreams materialize into their reality.

FAQ's Related to Step 2 CS Workshop

How do I schedule my Step 2 CS course?

Students enroll online through Delphi USMLE website, the Delphi team will contact the student, and the students schedule will be made. All orientation start dates are to be found on the website under the “schedules” tab.

When should I take the course?

Delphi recommends that students take the Step 2 CS course, whether it be the 5-day or 7-day, at least one to two weeks before their exam. The course will build student confidence, therefore the closer you get to the exam, the better.

What does the course include?

Delphi Step 2 CS course includes our own personalized book written by Dr. Roy Lingam, 35+ case scenarios to practice with real SP’s, and one on one teachings for how to write a proper patient note. Students will learn from our book and practice these techniques with the SP in both the 5- and 7-day courses. There is also an opportunity to learn and build on challenging questions, strong closures, and confident counseling’s.

Will I see better results with the 5-day or 7-day course?

The Delphi 5-day course is recommended for those who have attended United States Medical Schools. The 7-day course is recommended for students who attended an International Medical School. This gives the extra two days to ensure their confidence in technique and stamina, as passing Step 2 CS is crucial to obtaining U.S. Residency.

My English is not good, what should I do?

When it comes to CS, we have a scripted handbook that lays the path for you to succeed. If a student practices this, it will become easier. With extra training and time spent practicing, we can ensure that you pass the exam. This might take longer than a student who speaks English, but Delphi is here to help.

What do I bring with me?

Students will need to bring a writing utensil on their orientation day. Delphi will provide the book that needs to be studied to complete our course. Following the first day, the students will need to bring a confident, healthy attitude and their stethoscope.
