This text presents a study tool for those preparing for Step 2 of the USMLE, concentrating on the OSCE and CSA simulated patient examinations. Working with actors posing as standardized patients, students must accurately examine, communicate with, and diagnose these patients and their clinical signs. The first half of the book introduces the exam and its components, while the second half consists of 50 cases which mimic the types of patients these students will see in their respective situations. It reviews physical examination skills, communication skills, and diagnostic skills, as well as describing what a simulated patient is and giving tips on passing each practice case.
