Start ur preoetation from now but do it after the 4th year coz the exam is clininally orianted ( ask u about basic knowlage but in a clinical senario )Hi, i think I'm in the same situation as you !
In my home country,I am currently in the summer vacation after finishing my 2nd year of medical school (6 years program). I was planning to take the USMLE step 1 as well , but I 'm not sure when to take it !! as in my home country the first 3 years are PURELY academical without any(or rare) CLINICAL knowledge, and I heard that the step 1 is "clinically" oriented?
so I wanna know what are you planning for? will you take it right after the 3rd year? or will you wait?
