About the USMLE Step 3 Exam and a Few FAQs

Step 3, the final USMLE hurdle, assesses your readiness for independent practice. Two days of MCQs and case simulations test your clinical judgment in outpatient settings. Master patient management, prioritize effectively, and conquer this final step to your US medical license.

Step 3 assesses your ability to apply medical knowledge in outpatient settings, simulating real-life doctor-patient scenarios. It’s a two-day exam consisting of:

  • Day 1: Multiple-choice questions (MCQs) covering clinical science, biostatistics, and medical ethics.
  • Day 2: Computer-based case simulations testing your clinical judgment, decision-making, and patient management skills.
You’re eligible to take Step 3 after passing Step 1 and Step 2 CK. While most students take it during their first or second year of residency, you can schedule it within your chosen eligibility period, typically one year.
Day 1 MCQs are presented in blocks of 40-50 questions, with each block covering a specific topic or organ system. You’ll have 75 minutes to complete each block.
You can retake Step 3 during your next eligibility period, but there are limitations on the number of reattempts allowed.
USMLE Step 3 differs from Step 1 and Step 2 CK as it is a two-day exam. Day 1 lasts for 7 hours and features 232 multiple-choice questions across six 1-hour blocks. Day 2 is 9 hours long, with 180 multiple-choice questions in six 45-minute blocks and 13 case simulations (CCS) of 10 to 20 minutes each.

Medsmarter testimonial

“The program is well organized, lecture notes are clear and concise, and all the instructors are very knowledgeable about their material. The strength of the program is clearly Dr. Untara’s personalized approach to each student coupled with a genuine desire to help students reach their maximal potential. She is a very dedicated and caring instructor who was able to create a clear study plan, academic support, and help with logistics for test day. I would highly recommend the program to anyone who is interested in either step 1 or step 2 preparation. ”
