I failed CS with every single components such SEP, ICE, and CIS at the first
attempt right after the USMLE improved the passing criteria. It was
devastating and almost destroyed my USMD dream.
It took eight months to give the second trying. I shadowed several doctors for five months. One of physician even said I am very crazy of working hard. Then I encountered seven to eight patients every day in one of under-served clinic with supervision until after my second attempt.
Besides working with patients, two American physicians organized one group
of people to train me once a week. Every time it took one to two hours.
I also had a study partner, a Korean physician who failed CS with me on the
same day. Fortunately, she lives in the city where I live. Everyday I joined
in her at one of McDonalds as soon as I was done the clinic. We practiced
one to two hours everyday except weekends.
Before the second time, I went to Kaplan five-day CS workshop. It was very
helpful. Finally I passed at the second time.
I hope my experience can benefit you a little.
Per your question, it is up to you. If you want to be a USMD badly, why you mind another try.
