About the USMLE Exam and Preparation

Now it’s time to take the next step in becoming a USMLE. Here is a few helpful tips you should know about the Board Exam, which is the licensure exam you need to become a practicing physician, and in preparation to the exam.

USMLE assesses a physician's ability to apply knowledge, concepts, and principles, and to determine fundamental patient-centered skills that are important in health and disease and that constitute the basis of safe and effective patient care.

Before you can apply for a medical license, you must pass a three-step test called the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), also known as the board exam.Physicians with an MD degree are required to pass this examination before being permitted to practice medicine in the United States.

There are three steps to the USMLE (Exam):

Step 1

Step 1 is a one-day test, usually taken at the end of the second year of med school. It emphasizes knowledge of basic sciences, including microbiology, anatomy, biochemistry, immunology, behavioral sciences, pathology, pharmacology and physiology. Topics such as nutrition, genetics and aging are also covered.

The 8-hour testing session is divided into 7 one-hour blocks for a total of seven hours of testing time and a one-hour break.All questions are multiple-choice.

Step 2

Step 2 is a two-day test, usually taken in the fourth year of med school. It has two components. The first (called Clinical Knowledge, or CK), requires you to answer multiple–choice questions on clinical sciences like surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics and obstetrics and gynecology.

For Step 2 (Clinical Knowledge), The 9-hour testing session is divided into 8 one-hour blocks, for a total of eight hours of testing time and a one-hour break.

The second (called Clinical Skills, or CS) requires you to examine and diagnose actors posing as patients. Students must travel to one of five testing centers around the country. The exam consists of 12 patient encounters. You will have 15 minutes for each encounter, followed by 10 minutes to complete your patient note.

The three areas that examinees are graded on are the Integrated Clinical Encounter (ICE), Communication and Interpersonal Skills (CIS) and Spoken English Proficiency (SEP).

Step 3

Step 3 is a two-day test, usually taken after the first year of residency. This is the final assessment of whether or not you're prepared to practice general medicine in an unsupervised setting. Similar to Step 2, Step 3 focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of patients. It includes both multiple choice questions and computer simulations of patient care.
