Insights from Dr Hill

In my opionion, First Aid for the USMLE Step 2 CS is an excellent resource to begin and to develop your USMLE Step 2CS preparation, as it covers most of the fundamentals.
Remember, though… The Step 2CS exam is a practical exam; so, your preparation must include practical / interactive resources.
Include practical training by an experienced SP (Standardized Patient) who also has a strong track-record coaching USMLE Step 2CS test-takers.
This is ESPECIALLY true for IMGs, who are less familiar with US doctor-patient relationships and interactions.
As always, reach out to a DRN Education advisor, who can give you individualized recommendations on when and how to best use First Aid for the USMLE Step 2 CS in your studies.
