With the increasing difficulty matching in today’s healthcare environment, just passing the Step 2 CK is not enough.  Students must strive to earn top scores on their exam in order to distinguish themselves from competing students during the match.  By taking the USMLE Success Academy’s Online Step 2 CK Preparation Program, you will master the skills required to pass the exam and, more importantly for matching purposes, obtain a top score.  Most medical graduates choose to save money preparing for the exam by studying on their own and/or using outdated sources and incorrect test-taking strategies.  Students spend on average in excess of $100,000 on their medical education, but choose to study on their own for the CK exam to save some money.  Imagine what failing the CK exam would do for your career.  By taking the USMLE Success Academy’s Online Step 2 CK Preparation Program you will master the skills required to pass the exam and score high on your first attempt, thereby guaranteeing that your time, money, and investment in your future was not wasted away. 

According to, the mean CK score for IMG’s who matched into a Medical Residency in 2013/2014 was 233, while the mean CK score for American medical students who matched was 224.

Knowing the difficulties faced by future physicians, we have created a comprehensive and affordable Online Preparation Program designed specifically to assist you in passing and achieving a top score on the exam in order to obtain the residency of your dreams.  With the Step 2 CK minimum passing score being changed to 209 (effective July 1, 2014), and the mean averages for matching students being at an all-time high, there has never been a better time to join the Success Academy.

We created a unique, exclusive Program that was designed from the ground-up specifically with you in mind.  Our Online Program is user-friendly, the material is taught in an easy-to-absorb format, and, most importantly, highly effective at providing you with exactly what you need to succeed, without all the unnecessary,extraneous information!

  • Access to our team of MD’s throughout your program (Have questions? Send us an email and we’ll get right back to you with an answer)
  • We limit the number of students enrolled at any particular time (This ensures we can dedicate as much time as is required to responding and answering all of your questions in a timely manner)
  • You have the flexibility of studying anytime, anywhere, and at your own pace
  • Flexible options available for Program access (1 month, 3 month, 6 month, and 12 month options) at a fraction of the price of our competitors
  • Unlimited lecture playback (Other program limits you to 1-2 views only, then charge you for additional views)

All of these benefits and more are built into our Online Step 2 CK Preparation Program for one single reason; to ensure your success!  While we could take in as many students as possible, by limiting the overall number of students enrolled with the Success Academy at any given time, we can ensure you receive the attention you need to succeed.  This stems from the Success Academy’s core Philosophy that the quality of our Preparation Programs is the top priority.  Every other “online” Step 2 CK ‘review’ program in the Nation gives you access to their lectures and then you never hear from them again.  When you join the Success Academy, if you have any questions or concerns, we are always available to help.

One of the main reasons for student failure on the Step 2 CK exam is a lack of focused planning and action-taking.  With this in mind, we implement the Success Academy’s proven step-by-step Preparation Strategy on day #1 for all of our students to get you started on the path to your success.

And finally, if other Step 2 CK programs aren’t willing to give you a Passing Score Guarantee*, then they don’t have the confidence or track record of student success like the Success Academy does.  We stand behind our Preparation Programs 100%, which is why we offer an iron-clad Passing Score Guarantee to our students.  If you follow our lead, work hard, and stick to the plan that we lay out for you, we guarantee you a passing score or you will simply get your money back!
