    I currently work in Minnesota. I did not fail a step along the way, so I can't help you out in that respect. However, the state board clearly spells out on the application that if you have failed any one step 3 times or more.....you are not eligible to have a license in Minnesota.

    Does anyone knows of a state in which an International Med Graduate can get a license after finishing the PGY-1?

    See: FSMB | Licensure Examinations | USMLE Step 3 | Initial State-Specific Licensure Requirements

    3 attempts at each USMLE Step; 4 attempts allowed if current license in another State and current certification by specialty board of ABMS, AOABPE, RCPSC, CFPC. All three levels of Comlex must be passed within 6 attempts.
    "3 attempts" - does that include passing attempts too? What if someone passes a USMLE on the 4th attempt - that's 3 failed attempts and 1 passing attempt. I think "3 attempts" means "3 failures in each step."

    I mean, if someone passes all usmles on first attempt, that is still a total of 4 attempts.
