How will PDs be able to straify STEP 2 ck scores since they are so close to each other and there is not much variance. For example, anesthesia average step 2 -245 Vs. Derm being 248. That is only a three point difference. Rads has a step 2 ck score of 248 while Derm is 255. Pediatrics is 241 while again anesthesia is 245. Anesthesia has always has a much higher step score than Peds and is way more competitive.

Can anyone comment on this and contribute?

These averages are taken from the 2020 NRMP. Thanks
