Hello Dr. Mark H Swartz,
I passed my CS exam.
Your approach and guidance was really great and very, very helpful especially for IMG’s with no prior clinical exposure in US.
Thank you once again Dr. Swartz and the team at C3NY.
I would suggest C3NY workshop for all those who are looking for right guidance.
Dear Dr. Swartz and Ms. Anna,
I was a participant of the February 2008 workshop and took my exam twelve days after the class. I just learned earlier today that, despite all the mistakes I made, I passed CS! What a relief!
I want to thank you and all the SPs for the great help you gave me. The course was an eye opening experience for me. Without it, I could not imagine of passing CS. It also helped me to have a better understanding on practicing medicine in US.
Again, thank you very much!
Hi Dr. Swartz and Anna,
Just a quick note to say I passed the Step 2 CS. Thanks for all your teaching and advice (I was in your October 23-25, 2006 C3NY Workshop). I would definitely recommend your course to anyone who is taking the exam. You just cannot learn everything from a book or the internet!
Best wishes for the future.
I would like to thank you, Dr Swartz and the SPs for your help and critique during the course. It was a great experience. I must add comment that one spare day that we had (between day 2 and day 3) to play with the oto-ophthalmoscopes as well as do some practice exam on each other was very useful. It not only brought us together as a group, but also helped us exchange some important info regarding the exam as well as future plans.
I took exam on Dec 16th and received result within 5 weeks. Dr. Swartz is a great teacher, and I enjoyed learning some important steps that are hard to pick from the books.
I have also heard comments from other people and having experienced it, I think your program is the most well-structured, organized and to the point. I am sure over the next years it is going expand and lots of folks like me will benefit from it.
Hi Dr Swartz,
I enrolled in your class last May 2014. I got my results and I passed!!
Thank you for helping me understand “communication” is the most important thing for the Step 2CS exam. I talked to patients like I would to my family…genuinely from my heart. I did what they considered as the most important. I believe they had to give me a good score even though I did not do in ICS as well as I had hoped.
More importantly, you said to me “God bless you” privately on the last day, which is the real reason why I passed.
Dear Dr. Swartz and Anna Lank,
I just got my Step 2 CS results and I passed with flying colors. I would like to thank you for offering such a great course and will definitely recommend it to everyone that I see. I am extremely happy right now.
Thank you for everything!
Dear Anna and Dr. Swartz,
I am glad to share with you good news! I just got the results of my Step 2 CS and I passed!!! Yeah!!!!!!!
Thank you all for cheering, supporting, listen to me, etc., etc.,etc….
Both of you and my workshop colleagues helped me a lot, and I am sure I would have missed the goal of step 2 CS test if I had not attended your workshop.
I have to say I am sometimes quite stubborn, and I was reluctant to accept or agree that it was a test about the patient, not about my medical knowledge – probably because I was never exposed to that. Following your advice, I accepted the option to direct all my attention to what my SPs had to say and sometimes I even sacrificed parts of the PE in order to make a good closure, addressing their the concerns. And it worked!!!!!!
Have we all a great day (my day begun wonderfully!)
Dear Dr. Swartz, Anna, and SPs:
I want to thank you all for the advise, critiques, and support that you gave us. I just learned that I passed the Step 2-CS exam, and I have found out that many of those who took the workshop with me in July passed also.
The workshop was great …. and in the test nobody cried so I did not cry either!
Dr. Swartz you are a great teacher!!
Hello Dr. Swartz & the C3NY Team!
Many thanks to all of you for such an excellent workshop in June – I took the exam on the next day (June 22 in Philly). I got the results of Step 2 CS today and I passed!!!
I was pretty nervous about my Patient Note part, thinking that I didn’t do well on that one, but I guess all’s well that ends well! And I am elated on seeing the result
Thanks very much for your kind help in understanding the intricate aspects interviewing a patient, how to show empathy and for lots of tips that you gave. Mr. Richard was great, indeed! Please give my special kudos to him, since I learned a lot from him too.
I would heartily recommend the C3NY program to my friends.
Dear Dr. Swartz,
I learned my lesson; I passed USMLE Step 2CS.
Maybe you remember my story. I had taken USMLE Step 2CS and failed before I attended in your course. Six months after your course, I was in Atlanta and passed the exam. All this made me very aware of the importance of clinical history taking and the examination.
I received the German certification for a doctor of internal medicine, and I am now working in a department of emergency medicine. I found this to be the place for improving my skills of history taking an examination in a broad range of internal (and neurological, surgical) diseases. Every day my illness scripts are getting better.
Thank you again!
