USMLE Step 3 Tutoring

The USMLE, or, United States Medical Licensing Exam, is a blanket term that refers to a set of three standardized medical exams. Acting as a stopgap between milestones during medical training, the USMLE is intended to assess the knowledge of medical students and ultimately decide if you should be allowed to proceed in your medical studies and anticipated career.

USMLE Step 3 is the last of the three USMLE exams and is taken after internship/residency has already begun making it the least stressful of the set.

USMLE Step 3 requires integrating knowledge across many different topics in clinical medicine. There is a heavy emphasis on biostatistics and interpretation of research data.

Scored on a scale of 120 to 300, the lowest passing USMLE Step 3 score is 196. The national average (as of 2017) is 225±15.

USMLE Step 3 is a two-day exam. Day 1 is 7-hours long with six 1-hour blocks of 38-40 questions each. Day 2 is 9-hours long with six 45 min blocks of 30 questions each and 13 case simulations (CCS), approximately 10-20 minutes each.
