    Licensure requirements for illinois

    I have a question: I read the requirement in the FSMB site and for IL the limit of USMLE attempts is 5 for all steps. Does it mean that an applicant can only fail any step for no more than 2 times?

    steps

    the way i read it... you can fail step one 5x, and not fail any other step again, and still be okay.

    Can someone clarify this? I thought a successful attempt still counts as one attempt, so in other words you can only take two extra attempts in addition of the normal 3 (one for each step). I found the state's statement is a little bit too vague with this matter!

    I got the info from the state's medical board website. I haven't failed 5x; but I don't want to be in a state where I can potentially be left out of the door with licensure (for failing step 3 more than once, for example).

    Btw, my question is not on whether someone with multiple failures can get a residency (since I know it IS possible).

    Elective Rotations and Illinois

    Does anyone know if Illinois has any requirements regarding "elective" rotations performed outside of one's own teaching hospitals?

    I'm thinking of potentially doing residency and then getting licensed in Illinois. I've checked the state website, but don't see anything regarding electives (ie. whether they must be greenbook and whether there's a limit to the number, such as is the case in NY).

    Thanks!
