This is all completely rumor at this point, but I have decent information that Step 2 CS is going to be retired beginning next year or the year after. Since I’ve been out of the medical school game for awhile now, this is something that you guys may be hearing around your schools as well.
The rumor is that US medical graduates will no longer be required to take the exam, but FMGs will still have some version of it. It’s basically a reversion back to the old days pre-CS for American graduates.
Let us know if you’re hearing the same things around your school.
