On or after September 10, 2017, patient notes written in the Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) exam will automatically submit at the end of the 25 minutes allotted for each patient encounter. Examinees will no longer end the patient note by clicking “Submit.”
A program for practicing writing the patient note is available. Please practice to become familiar with all the features of the program before taking the examination.
Examinees are also encouraged to review the full USMLE announcement for more information.
NOTE: The date for the start of the automatic stop feature was originally projected to be July 16, 2017.
