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

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 ;)
