Step 2 CS Discontinued

On January 26, 2021, the USMLE announced that they are cancelling plans to relaunch a modified Step 2 Clinical Skills exam due to the COVID-19 pandemic and have decided to permanently discontinue Step 2 CS. In the statement, the USMLE states: "We have no plans to bring back Step 2 CS, but we intend to take this opportunity to focus on working with our colleagues in medical education and at the state medical boards to determine innovative ways to assess clinical skills."
