For house officers, the USMLE Step 3 constitutes the last step one must take toward becoming a licensed physician. For international medical graduates (IMGs) applying for residency training in the United States, it represents an
opportunity to strengthen the residency application and to obtain an H1B visa. Regardless of who you are, however, do notmake the mistake of assuming that the Step 3 exam is just like Step 2. Whereas Step 2 focuses on clinical diagnosis, disease pathogenesis, and basic management, Step 3 emphasizes initial and long-termmanagement of commonclinical problems in outpatientsettings. Indeed, part of the exam includes computerized patient simulationsin addition to the traditional multiple-choice questions.
In this section, we will provide an overview of the Step 3 exam and will offer you proven approaches toward conquering the exam.
