I think the best website to look for a USMLE study partner is www.usmleforum.com simply because they are the largest online community and so you have more chances of finding someone
However, this website is doing really a good job. Admins are directly interacting with the users and solving their problems and I would expect that this website would grow significantly over the coming months and it will be a serious alternative to www.usmleforum.com

www.residencyforum.com is only useful for step 3 partners
www.studentdoctor.net is only useful for American Medical students

I personally found my study partner here in this website. For good reason, you can send private messages to members while other sites does not allow this.
I don't want to show my email to everybody and then I will end up receiving all kinds of spam.

Default Worst Sites

The worst forum to find a study partner is prep4usmle forum because it is full of junkies! Women with multiple personalities and Skype IDs wasting every ones time! I don't go to that forum any more. I am not sure if they are really doctors.

I found some good legit people on usmlerockers.

Try to post and it will ask you to register.
By the way, now I think this website usmle-forums.com is way better than usmleforum.com, that website is full of spam and non-sense posts, stay away from it.

Vienna4u,

usmleforum doesn't recognize verification code from an apple computer. I guess their website is Microsoft or PC friendly only. So, you will need to create a user account from a PC. It's same for usmlebuddies. I had the same problem and I used my PC to create a user account. If you have any questions send them to me in a PM.

Thank you
