This course instructs both the medico-mechanical and humanistic components of the clinical exam. We take a hands-on approach with multiple standardized patient encounters. Learners working with simulated patients are closely supervised one-on-one by MD preceptor during these simulated clinical encounters.
Post each encounter, our preceptor provides feedback to the learner on their communication, history taking, empathy, counseling, 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 students and our instructors with the goal of performance assessment and sequential improvement.
Our Step 2 CS course is $3200/ 4 weeks.
