    Step3 now or later?

    Advertisements



    I'm wondering whether to take step 3 before the residency starts in June or during the residency. What would you recommend?
    Also, How to prepare for the peds residency...
    Thanks!

    now...

    One more time Steph: NOW.

    The reason why steph is telling you this is to get it out of the way. I think if you have the opportunity to take it before residency it will make things easy and less burdensome no worries!

    prep

    actually step three is the only one i didnt do a review couse for and I did best on it. USe crush the boards, Qbank and Swansons. I also looked at usmleworld.com for complete CCS which really gave me extra points for sure. that's it.

    Hi Steph! Did you mean Crush the Boards or Crush Step 3? Both of them are from the same author. Thanks!

    Is it really true that an US Medical Graduate should take

    the USMLE Step 3 before even starting residency?

    What topics are covered on Step 3?
    If Kaplan sufficienctly covers questions on Step 3, then maybe taking step 3 during end of 4th year is a good idea?

    Any input would be greatly appreciated along with reasons?

    Thanks a lot.

    have to have ur MD and u r ECFMG certificate before you can take it... so unfortunately cannot take it during the end of 4rth yr... but certainly right after and right before residency...
