Dear Dr. Swartz, Anna, and Sandy,
Hey guys……..finally good news!!!!
Just received my ECFMG certificate. All steps concluded!! Now I’ll start looking for a spot in the Internal Medicine programs for 2007.
Thank you so much for your collaboration in the conclusion of this last step. Every word that you advised me was crucial to this accomplishment as well as for my professional and personnel life. Despite the “couple yawnings” during our talks, I guess I picked up the most of the tips you guys gave me.
I’ll let you know about this next step that will make me able to apply in real life all those skills and others that will come up!!!
Thank you again for everything Anna, Sandy and Dr. Swartz.
I am glad to let you know that I passed the exam taken on July 13th, 2010.
I would like to take a moment to thank you and Dr. Swartz as it would have been really difficult to get through the exam without attending the C3NY workshop. It was one of the best workshops I ever attended in my career.
Keep it up. Good wishes.
Good Afternoon Dr. Swartz,
I found out that I passed the exam today!! I was nervous before I open the file since I failed three times previously. However, I passed this time with high marks on all three sections!
I like to thank you, Ms. Anna Lank and all the actors and actresses who helped me understand not only let me pass the Step 2CS exam, but also taught me how to treat other human beings genuinely and kindly.
It was a remarkable education for three days. Dr. Swartz, I like to tell you that I am a living your testimony! I even had all the rotation in the United States and I had been told by other doctors that I have quite good communication skills. However, I failed three times with very low score in data gathering, patient note section and even other parts. I believed your teaching from the first day with all my heart and learned and practiced them. Now I passed with very high score!
Thank you again and have a wonderful day Dr. Swartz!
Dear Dr. Swartz, Anna, and the rest of the C3NY team,
I am glad to inform you that I have passed the STEP 2 CS. You guys are doing a great job. I love you!
Thank you so much for your help!
Dear Dr. Swartz,
How are you? I hope you remember me from the April workshop. I just wanted to let you know that I passed the CS exam! Thank you so much for all your help, not just during the workshop but also afterwards over email. Please thank Ms. Lank and all the SPs on my behalf for all their help.
I had a wonderful time at the workshop, and I am so glad I went! It was an honor to meet you and to be taught by you. Keep up the great work at C3NY!
Dear Dr. Swartz and Miss. Lank,
I took Step 2 CS exam on September 16 and received my result today: PASS!
I took your course in August; it was wonderful! Because of other time issues, I took only your workshops, and I worked on the patient note and practiced with a friend 2-3 days during the last week before the exam.
I am really glad that I passed. And I give all the credit to you both who prepared my mind so well for the exam. You also helped me understand the main idea of this exam. Thank you so much. I say this from the bottom of my heart. I do not know so many fancy words to be able to tell you how grateful I am to both of you.
Thank you so much and keep up the good work.
Hello Dr Swartz,
I am really happy to inform you that I passed Step 2CS!
Thanks a lot to your whole team of C3NY, for your valuable guidance and support, without which it would have been very difficult for IMGs like me who are not at all familiar with the patient doctor interaction in USA to pass this exam.
All the small advices that you, Anna & your team gave are in reality not at all small. I can judge this best as this was my second attempt. It’s only now I can realize their importance in cracking the exam.
Thank you, Ms. Anna and all the C3NY team again!
Dr. Swartz I passed!!!!!!
Thank you SO SO MUCH!!!!! This would not have been possible without you! I owe you everything!!
The C3NY Workshop was truly an irreplaceable enriching experience.
Dear Dr. Swartz,
Hi, I passed thanks for the course and tips….I followed your advice. I actually almost had a panic attack on the first station…and the breathing got me through it was more relaxed after station 1…I almost passed out on station 1 honestly…given my practice station in your course was a disaster the rest of the exam went really well however. Your tips helped thanks.
Thanks for a great course …lots of great tips you can’t find in text books…I noticed most people said that when they left the workshop including me!
Dear Dr. Swartz and Ms. Anna,
I was in your April Workshop at NYC. I took my exam on 12th of July in Chicago, and I learned on 4th of August that I passed Step 2-CS. Thank you very much for the guidance and help in preparing me for the exam.
I want to tell you my feeling before and after the exam: I have to say the class was great, and I learned very important stuff in your class. Since this was my only clinical experience that I had in the States, I trusted whatever you said about the exam, but I did have a little doubt about it. I went to the exam, and I kept the flow of the communication, showed empathy, followed to wherever the “money” was, and so on. During my three-week waiting, I tried to forget the details of the exam and kept telling myself that I followed Dr. Swartz’s protocol, and I wished that you were right. You were…I passed!
If anyone is considering attending the C3NY class, I will tell them to go for it!
