United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) is a three-step exam for medical licensure in the United States and is sponsored by the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME).
USMLE measures a physician's ability to apply knowledge, concepts and principles. USMLE helps the medical students in demonstrating the fundamental patient-centered skills, which are important in health and diseases. It constitutes the basis of safe and effective patient care.
The USMLE Step 1 is the first in the series of the USMLE. The Step 1 directly assesses the basic science knowledge of medical students or graduates and its applications in clinical situations.
The content areas tested for Step 1 are Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology, Pathology, Pharamacology, Behavioural Sciences and a few interdisciplinary topics such as nutrition, molecular & cell biology are also tested.
The minimum elgibility requirement to sit for the step 1 exam is completion of basic sciences (i.e. must have passed 1st and 2nd yr of medical school).
The candidate's medical school must be listed on the World Directory of Medical Schools (WDMOS) and recognized by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).
The Step 1 exam contains approximately 280 multiple choice questions (MCQs). The exam is divided into 7 blocks of 60 minutes each and administered over a time span of 8 hours. Single best answers are the only format of questions that appear on the USMLE Step 1 exam.
The USMLE scores are only reported on the three-digit scale. The minimum passing score on the Step 1 is 192.
The exams are conducted by appointments all year round at Prometric Testing Centers in the US and outside US.
USMLE Step 1 Exam Fees:
The Step 1 exam fee is $880 if it is taken in the US and $1030 if it is taken in India. Any changes in the exam fee will be updated on www.ecfmg.org
