Default Step 3 eligibility before residency

Hey everyone, I am an IMG participating in the current 2016-2017 Match and am considering taking the step 3 before starting residency.

I read on the FSMB website ( https://www.fsmb.org/licensure/usmle...state_specific ) that ALL U.S states require IMG’s to successfully finish a minimum of 1year ACGME training (=internship year) to be eligible for “INITIAL MEDICAL LICENSURE”.

Does it mean that “licensure eligibility requirements” = “applying for step 3 requirements” ??

Before I apply, I want to be sure I am not missing anything as I understand that many IMG’s are taking the exam even before applying to residency / participate in the match.

Thanks

Default Apply

Some states allow you to take Step 3 exam before residency. Check it up and apply to those states.
Step 3 is a requirement for H1 visa.

Now, there are new rules, and you can take Step 3 anywhere BEFORE residency. Even in New York.
