Takumi, which year medical student are you in Japan? Preparing for the boards?

As for me, my university, 1 semester = half a year. Pre-clinical phase is 5 semesters. I am sitting for the boards at the end of the 5th semester.

Oh, means you are saying, has anyone took the USMLE after 1st year of med school? (since 1 semester = 3 months, hence 4 semesters would be 1 year)
