Comprehensive Approach to Gather Perspectives Kicks-off

Posted: July 06, 2020

To obtain stakeholder input on the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) assessment and how clinical skills would be ideally assessed for licensure in the future, a wide group of medical educators, clinicians, patient advocates, examinees, and others will be contacted over the next 2 weeks to gather insights and expertise regarding performance-based clinical skills assessment.

The information collected will help identify important characteristics of a performance-based exam for national licensure.

The USMLE program is committed to providing the state medical boards with a valid, standardized measurement of clinical skills. While administration of Step 2 CS is suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak and need to social distance, the program will use the coming months to gather information for identification of the optimal approach to assess clinical skills for licensure.

The initial survey is one step in a comprehensive approach to collect feedback over the course of the months to come.
