“Prior to COVID-19, the USMLE program was in the very early stages of exploring alternate formats and methods of delivery of the exam, as part of overall efforts to enhance the USMLE. As a result of COVID-19, these plans have been accelerated and are focused on a testing solution that employs a telehealth model, where examinees and standardized patients would interact on-line, via a web browser. Expediting such changes to the exam format and delivery will result in a safe and effective assessment for all involved.
The USMLE program is aggressively assessing this solution, which will require significant redesign of the exam’s content and delivery. At this time, Step 2 CS testing is expected to resume after July. We will provide information on rescheduling your exam as soon as it becomes available.”
