Dear Dr. Swartz and Ms. Anna,
Just want to share the good news that I passed my CS done last May 10, 2012.
I got the highest in the part : Professional manner and rapport. You’re right , establishing a good communication rapport with the patient is the key to this exam.
Thank you so much Doctor for everything… To be honest what you told me after the workshop that I am ready for the exam helped me build my confidence in those moments of doubt.
I know that what I learned in the workshop equipped me not only for the exam but for my future medical practice.
God bless you.
Dear Mz. Lank and Dr. Swartz,
I am Dr. Urjita Shah from India. I was in your course from 18-21st of August ’08.
I am really glad to inform you that I took my exam in September, and I passed it. Thanks a lot to both of you.
Wish you to continue helping people like me with your knowledge and experience. I wish to thank also all the SPs, especially the case I got for memory loss, an eldery female. She was amazing.
Thanks a lot again. I just wish we had Anna with us in the group picture.
Dear Dr. Swartz and Miss Anna Lank,
I finally overcame my nightmare (step 2 CS), I got the result yesterday: it was “PASS”.
Without the help of both of you, it would be impossible to make it. Your workshop was wonderful. I will keep telling my friends about it. Now I have met all of the requirements for ECFMG certification.
I attended your workshop at the end of August 2010, and I took the exam in October 2010.
Thank you again.
I was enrolled for the workshop for the month of May. I gave my exam on the 11th of June and received my result today. I passed CS with a decent performance and thank you and Dr. Swartz for the immense help. It wouldn’t have been possible without C3NY.
Dear Dr. Swartz and Anna,
I’ve just received my results, and I passed Step 2-CS.
The workshops were a very intensive 3 day program where I learned how to interview and examine a patient in 15 minutes. It was very focused learning. I have been able to practice it when I see my real patients in real life. It works. Thanks for all your help. I feel I am a better doctor already.
Good afternoon Dr Swartz,
I’ve got some terrific news for you!! I just got my CS result and I passed!!!! I’m ecstatic!! I don’t have words to describe the gratitude I feel towards you and the entire C3NY team!
When I came out of the exam centre I knew I had bombed it. But it all turned out extremely well in the end. Looking back I had made quite a few mistakes but I always remembered what you had taught us at the workshop.. proper introduction, be polite, take a good focused history and most importantly for me – don’t come out early!!! Anna’s ‘coffee shop’ technique worked wonders for me as well.
Once again, I don’t have words to describe how indebted I am to you. You are a Godsend Dr Swartz!!
God bless you and thank you so much once again.
I will stay in touch and will keep you informed regarding the whole match season and Residency process.
Dear Ms. Lank and Dr. Swartz,
I attended the April C3NY course. I passed the exam.
I would like to thank you both for the enormous help in making me understand this exam and get through it without any embarassing hiccups.
It was particularly hard to unlearn the ways I had learned for 7 years in the UK where i trained and completed the exams in Psychiatry. It was your approach that helped me through the process.
Thank you very much again for the personal training and motivation.
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.
Dear Dr. Swartz, Ms. Ginny, and Ms. Lank,
I am glad to inform you that I took Step 2 CS in Philly on September 6, and I PASSED!!
I attended the C3NY workshops in August 2005. It was fun learning from all of you, and I must say it really helped me as whenever I knocked on the door, I expected Mary Smith to be there! All the encounters went well. Thanks to Dr. Swartz, Anna, Ginny, and my workshop colleagues, Kalpesh, Muktak, Anant, Monica, Pratibha, Amna, Shivani and a long list…..who practiced with me as a group. I cannot forget Anna saying “BREATHE…….” which I did after I finished every encounter.
I really enjoyed learning as well the lesiure time in New York. Believe me before coming to New York I didn’t touch any book, and after the workshop was over me and Kalpesh, whom I met for the first time only at the workshop, practiced for about 15 days before appearing for Step 2 CS.
Thank you all once again!
Wish all my colleagues sucess in Residency Match Program,
Wish C3NY great success and a brilliant future.
Dear Anna and Dr. Swartz,
After 8 long weeks of waiting, I finally got my CS result, and I passed!
I attended the July workshop and took the test 1 month later. I feel the course prepared me well not only for the test, but also for my future career as a physician in this country.
Thank you very much!
