USMLE Step 2 CS pass/fail rates

The data in the tables below may be outdated. Please click this link for newest tables:

Above data indicate that almost 1 in every 4 international graduates will fail the USMLE Step2 CS. Commonest reason for failing used to be ICE (Integrated Clinical Encounter) but more and more IMGs are now failing the CIS (Communication and Interpersonal Skills). Unlike the popular belief, English proficiency is an uncommon cause of failure (see the table below)

  1. I took my Step 2 CS training a IMPAC University in PG,Florida. The program was GREAT!!! I passed 1st time. I had ALOT of practice with SPs, I think that is what really made the difference for me.
