Arrow Maybe six months!

Congratulations on the wonderful CK score

Your step 2 prep and the Canadian exam prep will definitely going to help a lot and you won't need much preparation for the clinical part of Step 1.

You will move fast in step 1 topics such as pathology, clinical pharmacology, microbiology, behavior, clinical physiology, and biostats.

But you will be moving slow in topics such as anatomy, biochemistry, genetics, immunology, pharmacokinetics, and basic physiology.

I'd say you might need a good six months of prep.
