    expiry date

    Actually, for the Cdn exams, it's only valid for 5 years. The USMLE's are valid for 7 years.

    Hrm

    Silly question, but I'm a little confused as to what the expirary dates on board exams are for.

    What does the 7 year period on USMLEs signify? Does it correspond to the time you're allowed to use your scores to match for residency? Qualify for licensure? Or both?

    I would imagine that it'd be pretty crappy if your step 1 score expired by the time you finish two years of clinicals, a year sitting out for visa, step 3, etc, and five years in say, general surgery residency- and you'll have to rewrite it to qualify for licensure.

    Hi Kirst,

    Hope schooling is going well.

    Take a look at http://www.fsmb.org/2003usmle/html_f...003_part_3.htm and you will have an idea about the 7-year time limit.
