Step 3; No More State Medical Board Sponsorship
1 Attachment(s)
Previously we had to apply through State Medical Boards in order to be eligible for the Step 3 Exam. For example see this thread here which mentions which State allow you take Step 3 exam before starting residency training.

The USMLE review committee has decided that this no longer required and you now apply to Step 3 without State Medical Board Sponsorship, the official announcement link is here

The changes will take effect in August 2014.

This will make applying for the Step 3 exam much easier than before and also means that training requirement is not as strict as before but the USMLE still recommends that you do your Step 3 during residency and before you finish your first year of residency.
