As noted in the 2012 USMLE Bulletin of Information, changes to the assessment of communication skills and patient note are planned in mid-2012. In order to introduce these changes to the examination, NBME & FSMB have decided that there will be no Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) examinations from May 20 through June 16, 2012.

The complete 2012 schedule can be seen here
