USMLE Step 1
Students are required to sit for USMLE Step 1 prior to the start of the core clerkships. A student who does not pass is required to retake the examination within 90 days. The student will not be able to start clinical rotations until the examination has been retaken. If the student has already started a rotation, the student has the option of either finishing the rotation or withdrawing from the rotation immediately. If the student decides to complete the rotation, the 90-day window to retake the exam begins at the end of the rotation. An extension to the 90-day deadline will be considered by the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs on a case-by-case basis.
USMLE Step 2
Students are required to take USMLE Step 2 CK prior to graduation. Effective January 2021, Step 2 CS was discontinued by the National Board of Medical Examiners; therefore, the CS exam is no longer required for graduation.
