View Full Version : What are the consequences of a failed Step 3 while in Residency, urgent!

06-21-2011, 09:09 PM
I am starting residency July 1st and I am about to take my step 3.

I honestly don't feel fully prepared yet. I don't know if I will pass or not. I can't extend the deadline again or reschedule.

So worst case scenario, what happens if I fail the Step 3?

Do residency programs typically put interns on probation or make them take extra courses or anything of that sort for a Step 3 failure? Or do most residency programs not do anything if a person fails the Step 3 once, before they even started?

Please help me ease my tension by answering. Thanks.
