Structured Preceptorship

This in-person course, offered in six-week blocks, is ideal for physicians who wish to gain relicensure before returning to clinical practice after an extended leave, and those wishing to enhance their focus or area of interest or enhance existing clinical skills. It is also geared toward international applicants to U.S. graduate medical education programs.

Online Clinical Skills

Physicians with similar goals (relicensure, return to active practice, enhancement of clinical skills or change in focus or area of interest, preparation for entrance to U.S. graduate medical education programs) can also benefit from the online clinical skills program, which utilizes experienced standardized patients to enhance the physician's history-taking and communication skills.

   Your program was exceptionally comprehensive and educational. It is particularly suitable to those who have spent time out of the medical field. There is a strong emphasis on communication skills, which will not only help with the Clinical Skills exam, but also can shape the way you approach future interviews. Additionally, the program would be a great fit for those attempting to take the Step 2 Clinical Knowledge and Step 3 exams.
