Details

Catalog description: In this independent study course, students will engage in full-time review for their national USMLE Step 2CK examination. Although the components of the course are designed for self-directed learning, students will have the opportunity for regular knowledge check ins and for one-on-one meetings with learner development staff on an as-needed basis. The focus of the course is to provide students with a systematic preparation approach to attain an optimal passing score outcome. Specifically, students will:

  • Work with the Office of Learner Development (OLD) to create and submit a study plan based on the C-Q-A model [template to be provided]
  • Submit weekly progress reports based on the C-Q-A process to track progress toward goal outcome.
