Warning! When could I take Step 1?

Hey guys,

I am still in my first medical year here in my country Egypt, I was wondering when can I undertake only Step 1 USMLE exam? (Can I take it at the end of my 3rd medical year which is the end of all academic training in my medical curriculum)

OR, I have to wait to get my medical diploma first so I can undertake it?

Also another question, is it better to do it that way? (Take step 1 after 3 years of medical training directly after I finish my academic training and then take step 2, three years later after I finish my clinical training)?

Thanks

Hi there

You can take your Step 1 exam while you're still in med school. Only thing is, you need to be done with the Basic Sciences before you're eligible to give the exam.

Can't help you much about Step 2 as I don't know much about it, but I plan to give it after I'm done with the relevant subjects in med school first.

Hey fat1iscool,

Thank you for your reply, but are you sure from this? I've been getting mixed opinion till now.


Best Regards
