You can do it whenever you like but most programs prefer fresh graduates.

to the best of my knowledge there is no specific time period to take your first USMLE exam. Once you have taken any of the steps though, you have 7 years to complete all 3 steps (true for most states).

Also you should know that when applying for residency programs prefer graduates who are "new", and by that i mean, most programs prefer applicants who have graduated within 5 years time (2 years preferably).
