Dear Dr. Swartz and Ms. Lank,
I attended the workshop last Sept. and took the exam 4 weeks after. I got the result a couple of days ago and I passed.
Thank you so much for all the help. I thought I wouldn’t make it, but I just followed all your instructions and everything went well. Your workshop is a way lot harder than the Step 2CS exam itself, but that’s what you told us.
Again, my heartfelt gratitude to all of you guys…
Dear Dr. Mark Swartz, Anna Lank and the entire team of C3NY,
I just received my passing mark for the clinical skills exam !
I enjoyed your course tremendously and think it is a critical course that should be embedded in every medical teaching center curriculum. Your standardized patients were amazing. Although I received rigorous training and clinical experience in a variety of settings, I gained a lot from this course. I give your course my highest recommendation.
Thank you so much for your time, effort, and patience.
Dear Dr. Swartz and Anna,
My name is Ran Zhang, and I took the workshop at Feb, from Feb 13th to Feb 15th. And I just got my CS result – PASSED!! As promised, I am writing to you immediately, really want to share the happiness, and express my appreciation!!
I got the email saying my score is available, and I logged in and downloaded the pdf file of my result. Before opening it, I had severe tachycardia, even arrhythmia maybe, and then I saw the word. I thought a lot in the past 5 minutes, and the scenes of the 3-day C3NY workshop re-appeared like showing a movie.
I did everything you taught me in the exam, 3 deep breaths before each encounter that Anna told me, communication, comfort, sympathy, even I was nervous and maybe panic a little bit, but I followed your instructions tightly, and that’s why I passed. (And also everything you said and expected was true, I felt terrible after exam, and even worse when closer to the the score report period, I thought I lost many things, skipped a bit in physical examination, et al. Although Dr. Swartz said that was normal, I could not convince myself before knowing the results.)
Couldn’t say thank you more! It’s hard for me to express how much I appreciate your help and support! I am only one case of your thousands of students, but the other way around, your help provided solid foundation leading to the success for me!
Thank you so much,TRULY and DEEPLY!!
Thank you C3NY. I took your three day course in June .
Please give my special thanks to Dr Swartz. I will never forget his kindness to me.
I feel myself very lucky to have attended his classes live as I was always consulting his book of Physical Diagnosis, and the workshops gave me a chance to see my long time teacher in person.
Bye for now,
Dear Dr. Swartz and Ms. Lank:
Hi! I’m Dr. Maricris Lapinid from the Philippines. I took your workshop last May 2008. I finally got my result last August, and I passed on my first attempt.
I’m writing you this card to let you know how thankful I am for all the very helpful tips you’ve given me. True enough, when I was taking my exam last June, your voices resounded in my head and what I learned from our workshop was pretty much all I needed during my exam. The workshop tremendously lessened my anxiety for the exam, and it really helped that I had an idea of what I was getting into. Of course, that’s all because of you.
I remember one of my classmates during the workshop commented that you are such a good soul, and I sincerely agree with him. May you continue to inspire more aspiring doctors like me!
I truly appreciate all your help. More power to you. I will encourage my friends to take your workshop. God bless you.
Hello Dr. Swartz, Anna Lank, & all the SP’s.
First I need to thank you all for my success. I passed on first attempt & my center was in Atlanta.
Dear Dr. Swartz, Anna, Ginny:
I PASSED my CS exam, & I am very grateful to Dr. Swartz & all of you for an unforgettable experience that gave me confidence and excellent outcome.
The exam was really very stressful , but with each patient I felt Dr. Swartz’s presence in the room. I followed all his detailed advises, how to enter, where to stand, smile, be at the same level OR lower than the patient, where to keep hands, how to write notes, wash hands, cover the patient, drape him……all, all his words ……all of them are very, extremely are important!!!!! They helped me A LOT!!!!
I strongly recommend to all CS takers to take this short but very IMPORTANT workshop course.
Even if you feel ready after reading all textbooks, C3NY polishes your knowledge and gives you confidence, calms anxiety, and takes away stress.
Thanks a lot for all your work; you are doing a great job!
Hi Anna & Dr. Swartz,
I got my result today, and I passed my CS.
I took your C3NY coaching in April. Thanks to you both.
I just want to say your course is wonderful. I felt bad on last day that I needed to work a lot. But it worked. I finally passed. Spending $1,300 on this course was really worth it!
I am fulfilling my promise made to you and Dr. Swartz that I will mail and let you know my step 2 CS result. I just got my score reports and I have PASSED!
Dr. Swartz was right. After finishing my exam, I was so certain that I had done everything wrong that I spent one and a half months thinking I would fail! But thanks to all your efforts, I cleared the exam. I can’t thank you guys enough for all your help, encouragement and advice. You are the best! THANKS!!
Dear Dr. Swartz,
Hello this is Raymond. My friends Jang and Jaanna and I flew from Korea to take your C3NY workshop in September. After your excellent workshop, we all flew to LA to take the exam. We only had one day to review your course, but we had no choice. : )
September 29th, was our exam date, I was pretty nervous and made a few mistakes on the first three cases, but after the case number 4, I became calm.
As you said all the real cases were easier than C3NY cases. : ) I think practicing with your SPs helped a lot. They were excellent.
Finally today, me and my friends found out that we ALL passed the Step 2 CS.
I really appreciate your work and that of all your professional actors.
Please say thank you to Anna!
