    Step 3 for interviews??

    Advertisements



    Hi!

    I just got an email from a friend saying that she was the only med student during an interview. That all of the others were practicing docs in their countries and ALL had STEP3. Any comments or similar experiences??? She also states that one of the programs she was applying to had S3 as part of the requirements for interview...

    Step 3 is generally taken by foreign grads because it is required for immigration purposes. If you graduate off-cycle, you might as well take it and get it over with. It's just Step 2 with a lot more emphasis on patient management.

    I didn't have Step 3 for my interviews but I plan to have a score in before ranking time.

    Its taken anytime during residency but typically after 1st year. It is like step 2 but more clinically oriented and overall easier I thought.

    Its great to be a Florida Gator and IM Board Certified!!
