Hello! It may be more information than you need, but this article might help you.
Planning for U.S. Residency Match and Building a Competitive Application

I would plan for late spring. There is a lot of competition for slots during the summer.

the best time to apply for USCE is after taking step 1 and step ck. so you gain more knowledge before taking hands on clinical experience.

Fire Thread Best Time for USCE

We recommend that you secure 3-4 Letters of Recommendation within your specialty before Sept 15th 2020.

The best time to plan for USCE is right after you secure your Step 1 score, as that will be a reality check on what specialty you should apply to.

Utilizing the latest evidence based data, we can build a strategy & schedule that works for you (& most importantly your budget!)

Thank you!
