Everything You Need To Know About The USMLE (For Medical Students/Doctors)

What is the USMLE?

Hello I am Dr Steve currently about to write STEP 2 CK.
I get lots of questions about this so I hope this will help.

The USMLE, United States Medical Licensing Examination, is the only examination that makes you practice Medicine as a Doctor in the United States.

It has 3 Steps Step 1, 2(CK &CS) & 3. Step 1 tests your understanding of the fundamental principles of Medicine. Step 2CK tests your Clinical knowledge & Step 2 CS tests your Clinical skills. Step 2CK & Step 2CS are separate exams. Step 3 accesses whether you are ready to be an independent Clinician & can also be used for fellowship exams.

It’s better to write Step 1 in 400level, STEP 2 CK & CS after 600level. Take Step 3 after Step 2CS. 

You can still write all the exams after you graduate but this is my advice.

The most important thing is to write the exam only when you are fully prepared.

Step 1 Covers 7 Subjects; Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Behavioral Science(with Biostatistics), Pharmacology, Microbiology & Pathology. 

Step 2 covers Medicine, Surgery, Paediatrics, O&G, Psychiatry & Epidemiology. 

Step 3 covers practice concepts of general medicine/family medicine 

Start Preparing for Step 1 in 200level, Step 2 in 400level. So that you are fresh and you don’t spend extra years preparing for it after you graduate & you will also be ahead in your class. Also be very serious with your course work as this will make the exam easier and also give you an edge. 

Step 1 & Step 2Ck costs :N327,600($910) Step 2 CS Costs N568,095($1,565) Step 3 costs N306,000($850). *Note that this varies depending on the exchange rates.
