YoungBuzz Studyabroad Counselor - The United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®) is a battery of tests required for anyone who is wants to be licensed to practice medicine in the United States. There are three steps to the overall licensing examination. The first part of the USMLE–Step 1—is a one–day, computer–based exam that tests your mastery of the sciences and scientific principles involved in the practice of medicine.

What specifically does the USMLE test?
The USMLE tests understanding in 7 different areas–anatomy, behavioral sciences, biochemistry, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology, physiology, and other interdisciplinary topics such as nutrition, genetics, and aging.

How is the USMLE scored?
The USMLE provides two scores–a 3 digit score and a 2 digit score. The 3 digit score is the most accurate and relevant. Most Step 1 scores fall between 140 and 260. The 2–digit score is used to satisfy certain medical licensing authorities who require a "passing score of 75." The two–digit score is scaled so that a score of 75 always corresponds to the minimum passing score.

How do I register?
Registration is handled by the National Board of Medical Examiners at www.nbme.org.
