    Failed Step 2CK What are my options?

    Advertisements



    Hoping for any insight and opinions, or if anyone has been through this before and hopefully had a positive outcome.

    I am a 4th year medical student at a foreign med school, and have done very well up until now. In clinical rotations I have received half A's and the other half B's. I received a 228 on my Step 1. I am looking to do general surgery only, and have completed 2 audition rotations which also went very well. I have great LORs all from department heads, positive feedback, and have made some great connections. Everything was going great, until to my shock, I found out yesterday that I failed Step 2 CK...by one point.

    I registered to re-take, and so far only have the date range from Oct 1st Dec 31st.

    I have so many questions. What is the reality? Is there ANY chance of getting matched into a General Surgery Residency? What are my options? Again, I would appreciate any input whatsoever as I try to get through this. Thank you for the help.

    To be honest, even if you had passed, I highly doubt you would have gotten a categorical position with your score for step 1 being less than 250. Take ck again, apply to preliminary or some community gen surg
