Default After step 1 before graduation

Yes it is better you do it after step 1 exam because you get more opportunities but it is better you do it before you graduate(must be in final year of medical school or internship) because only then are you eligible to do a clerkship rather than an observership/externship. A clerkship is a training program where you get hands on experience and is always better to do. If you graduate, then you are eligible to only an observership or an externship,which as the term implies is only observing or 'shadowing' a physician. Most programs require step 1 exam but not all.In my opinion completing the step 1 before usce is always ideal.

Here are a couple of sites to get you started:
