This course will serve as a study aid for those preparing to take the USMLE Step 3 CCS exam. Building on the skills and knowledge you have already demonstrated during the Step 1 and Step 2 CK, Step 3 is designed to determine if students can apply medical knowledge as well as clinical science with an emphasis on patient management in ambulatory settings. The exam will also test students’ familiarity with the CCS system.
Join Residents Medical tutor Dr. Karthik Iyer for a study session to prepare yourself for the Step 3 exam. Dr. Iyer graduated in the top 10% of his class at the age of 23 years old after completing a 6-year BS/MD medical program at Northeast Ohio Medical University. He went on to pursue an internal medicine preliminary position at Cleveland Clinic-Akron General Hospital and, afterward, was accepted into a psoriasis dermatology research fellowship at George Washington Medical Faculty Associates with a residency track. Since joining the tutoring staff at Residents Medical, he has helped hundreds of students successfully prepare for USMLE exams on their pathway to residency.

About the instructor
Karthink Iyer, M.D.
USMLE Specialist Tutor
Dr. Karthik Iyer is a passionate Step 1, 2, and 3 tutor who left a guaranteed dermatology residency position for his true purpose. From a young age, he knew that medicine was his gift and talent and, as a result, attended a 6 year BS/MD medical program at Northeast Ohio Medical University.
After graduating in the top 10% of his class at the age of 23 years old, he completed an internal medicine preliminary position at Cleveland Clinic-Akron General Hospital and, afterward, was accepted into a psoriasis dermatology research fellowship at George Washington Medical Faculty Associates with a residency track. However, he had been working as a USMLE Tutor during this time and, after taking his Step 3 exam, realized that his true calling was USMLE Tutoring. He left his dermatology position to become a full-time tutor to break down and teach others his strategies that allowed him to score a 273 on the Step 2CK exam. Outside of USMLE tutoring, his passions include languages (French and Spanish), soccer, and human/behavioral psychology.
