OSCE based Exams

USMLE Step 2 CS (Clinical Skills) is an examination for medical students/graduates who wish to become licensed physician in the U.S.

IMGs can take USMLE exams in any order they feel comfortable. While some suggest taking USMLE Step 1 before other USMLE step 2 exams, ,ost IMGs in Canada planning to take  NAC-OSCE or MCCQE-2 would rather to go for USMLE Step 2 CS first.

Like all other OSCE based exams the USMLE Step 2CS exam consists of a series of patient encounters in which the examinee must take a history, do a physical examination, determine differential diagnoses, and then write a patient note based on their determinations.

The scope of exams and topics are almost the same as that of NAC-OSCE covering common outpatient or Emergency Room visits encountered in the fields of internal medicine, surgery, psychiatry, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology. Usually, examinees have one telephone encounter, speaking through a microphone.

NAC (The National Assessment Collaboration) Examination

The National Assessment Collaboration (NAC) Examination is a one-day, national, standardized OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) that tests the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for entrance into postgraduate training in Canada.

NAC is a must-take examination if  an IMG plans to apply to a Canadian residency program.

The NAC-OSCE includes a series of stations presented with typical clinical scenarios in Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics, Gynecology, Psychiatry and Surgery.
