Step 1 is for Basic Sciences = preclinical .. I believe you're 6 years with your internship .. meaning 5 years of studying .. probably 2 years of preclinical and 3 years of clinical . therefore you're ELIGIBLE to take the step 1 after your 2nd year.. but let me remind you it'll take ltos of studying to ACE (not only pass) step 1 .. in order to get a residency in US .. u should start asap to at least get to know the books.. what's recommended and such .. anyways u can always go to to find out more.. but since you're an IMG .. u'll read everything in I believe ..hope it helps
