The United States Medical Licensing Examination
As may you known, anyone who hopes to practice medicine in the United States must pass the United States Medical Licensing Examination, or USMLE. (The only exceptions are graduates of osteopathy programs, who can pass either the USMLE or the COMLEX.)
The test is actually a battery of three separate tests, known as Step 1, Step 2, and Step 3, and a candidate must pass all three steps in order to qualify for medical licensure. The purpose of the tests is to ensure that physicians are competent and highly qualified before they are granted a license to practice medicine in the US. Graduates of foreign medical schools are eligible to take the USMLE, but procedures for doing so are a bit different than for graduates of US or Canadian medical schools.
The USMLE Step 3:
Step 3 is a two day exam that measures a candidate’s ability to apply their medical knowledge and skills on their own, without supervision. This exam can only be taken after a candidate has passed Step 1 and Step 2, and awarded an MD upon graduation from medical school.
On the first day of the exam, there will be 336 multiple choice questions, divided into seven blocks of 48 questions, with an hour allotted for completion of each block.
Day will have 4 blocks of 36 multiple choice questions, with each one allotted 45 minutes. In addition, test takers will “treat” nine “patients” by real time computer simulation, with 25 minutes allotted for each simulation.
