Step 1

Step 1 assesses a student’s ability to apply important concepts of the basic sciences applicable to the practice of medicine. These core concepts are assessed to ensure mastery of the principles key to the safe and competent practice of medicine.

Step 1 is a one-day examination with seven 60-minute blocks for a total of 280 questions.

 

Step 2 CK

Step 2 assesses a student’s ability to apply medical knowledge and skills of clinical science and medical care of patients. The examination is constructed to emphasize the student’s ability to decipher physician tasks in relation to the clinical practice of medicine.

 

Step 3

Step 3 assesses the ability of the test-taker to apply medical knowledge and clinical science essential for the unsupervised practice of medicine.  This is the final examination of the USMLE sequence. Step 3 provides the final assessment of physicians assuming independent responsibility for medical care of patients.

The first day of the Step 3 examination is referred to as Foundations of Independent Practice (FIP), and the second day is referred to as Advanced Clinical Medicine (ACM).
