Advanced Clinical Medicine Program

Our Advanced Clinical Medicine (ACM) program is a carefully designed and evolving course that prepares physicians for the USMLE Step 2 exam. We take a holistic approach with multiple standardized patient encounters. Physicians work within our simulation labs as well as with simulated patients and are closely supervised one-on-one during these simulated clinical encounters. 

After each encounter, the Preceptor/instructor (PI) provides feedback to the learner on their communication, history taking, empathy, counseling and/or physical examination skills. This provides an opportunity for the learner to refine their professional clinical skills, gain self-confidence and earn the confidence of their patients. The facility is equipped with audio, video capture, and robust network resources for recording and analyzing the encounters. These recordings can be reviewed by learners, faculty, and PIs with the goal of performance assessment and sequential improvement.
