Default re: residency in internal medicine

I have an experience of 3 years in internal medicine . Could anybody tell me if doing step 3 would over score doing only step2cs before matching.
Also I would want to know if I could get an exemption of 1 yr in view of my experience.
Thanks in advance

As you are an old grad, then yes you have to do step 3 to increase your chances.

As if they will deduct one year from your residency that depends on the program, not all of them do it, you know why, because they get money from Medicare for each residency year you do!

Also you should have some recognizable overseas degree to be eligible for the exemption, such as MRCP or Indian DM.

Good luck
