Eligibility Extension
If you need to extend your eligibility period, you may submit an eligibility extension request for review. If your request is approved, a one-time contiguous 90-day extension may be granted. To request an extension, you must complete the Eligibility Extension application and submit a $65 processing fee.

Requesting an extension of your eligibility period does not cancel a scheduled exam appointment. If you have a scheduled testing appointment during your original eligibility period and need to reschedule the appointment for an extended eligibility period, you must cancel or reschedule with Prometric. A fee may be charged if you change your appointment, depending upon how much notice you provide when making the change. See the appointment change fee schedule posted on the USMLE and FSMB websites for detailed information.

At the time of the extension request, the FSMB will verify that the physician meets all USMLE and state medical board eligibility requirements. This includes any time limits and/or any post graduate training requirements for Step 3.
