Is Uworld step 2 a good resource for clerkship?

It's THE thing to do for NBMEs. If your school does solely in-house (ours just finalized all rotations with in-house), may not need it and can use free resources for learning. It gives practice on applying knowledge though. 

What's good for learning medicine at a clerk level? I don't want to study UWorld if it'll just make me good at test-taking (vs. actually learning medicine effectively).

UWorld is more test oriented so not the best for "learning" in general per se, but if you combine UWorld+First Aid you will get a lot more out of it. You can even tackle First Aid for step 3 if you want to up a notch.

Doing UWorld does keep you motivated to study if you set a schedule and do a fixed number of questions per day/week etc. Unless of course you study better by just reading books. Some people like studying by doing questions rather than reading books.

Doesn't mean they can't be one in the same - Uworld will cover most common topics that you should know as a clerk, and then some. If all you did was UWORLD, you would be in a strong footing for knowledge base- and then apply it to the real world on a day to day basis by learning the "flow" and guidelines for your respective rotation.

I agree with this.
