The Steps:

This information is current as of May 2011. Always speak to seniors who most recently gave the exam and read information on www.ecfmg.org and www.usmle.org for the latest guidelines.

Step 1:

About the exam:

This exam tests you on 1st and 2nd year subjects: Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Pathology, Microbiology, Immunology, Pharmacology and Behavioural Science.

It has 322 MCQs, administered as 7 blocks of 46 questions each (1 hour per block). You will have a TOTAL break time of 1 hour which can be used between whole blocks. This exam is given at a Prometric Center in any major city in India.

Step 2 CK (Clinical Knowledge):


About the exam:

This exam tests you on clinical subjects: Internal Medicine, Surgery, OBG, Paediatrics and Psychiatry.

It has 352 MCQs, administered as 8 blocks of 44 questions each (1 hour per block). You will have a TOTAL break time of 1 hour which can be used between whole blocks.

The questions in Step 2 CK are longer than Step 1 and are usually cases. They often times give the diagnosis at the end of the case description and ask what should be done next. The focus is more on clinical aspects. This exam is given at a Prometric Center.

Step 2 CS (Clinical Skills):

About the exam:

In this exam, you essentially have to take cases. There will be 12 standardised patients (actors). You have 15 minutes to take a history and perform a focused examination following which you will have ten minutes to write/type a patient note (from July 2011, only typing is allowed). You are then scored by the actor based on your history taking, examination, bedside manners, professional rapport, english proficiency etc. and your patient note. More details about the exam are given well in First Aid and USMLE and USMLE World websites. This exam can only be given in the US – Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston or Philadelphia.
