USMLE Scores Effect of Step 3 Score on Fellowship

Hi guys,

I am already matched last year in Internal Medicine.

I still have a couple of weeks before joining my residency.

I wanted to ask, do you think if I get just a passing score in step 3 is OK! When I apply for fellowship match later, do they consider step 3 score ?

Let me know your thoughts about this

Default It has no effect

When you will be looking for fellowship during your last year in residency the following factors play major role:

- the program where you've done residency (University vs community)
- research
- publications
- connections to fellowship directors

I don't think your USMLE step 3 score has any weight in determining your fellowship eligibility or at least this is what I have seen.

So go ahead and just pass it
