Enhanced security policies at CSEC test centers

Posted: March 29, 2017

Enhanced security policies will take effect in all Clinical Skills Evaluation Collaboration (CSEC) test centers beginning April 4, 2017. The enhanced security procedures are being conducted to inspect for electronic devices.

The USMLE Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) examination is administered at CSEC test centers in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, and Philadelphia.

Beginning April 4, 2017, CSEC administrators will conduct inspections of all eyeglasses, jewelry, and other accessories.

  • All examinees will be required to remove eyeglasses for visual inspection by the test center administrators. These inspections will be brief and will be performed during the check-in process.
  • Jewelry, except for wedding and engagement rings, is prohibited.
  • Hair accessories are subject to inspection.  Examinees should not wear ornate clips, combs, barrettes, headbands, and other hair accessories. Examinees wearing any of these items on the test day may be asked to store such items in their locker.
