SCORE DELAY:
Most Step 3 scores are reported within 4 weeks of testing.

IRREGULAR BEHAVIOR:
Remember, the stakes on a medical licensing exam are high! Don't do something that might jeopardize your future as a licensed physician. Be sure you understand all the USMLE policies on security and irregular behavior by viewing the security video here.     

WINTER WEATHER:
For updates on the impact of winter weather on USMLE Step 3 administrations, please go to the Prometric websiteIf your test center is closed due to inclement weather and you are not able to test, you must do the following: 

  • If you have not opened the exam at all (i.e., not yet taken Day 1), send an email to FSMB at usmle@fsmb.org 
  • If you have opened any part of the exam (i.e., started or completed Day 1), send an email to USMLE Test Admin at testadmin@nbme.org 
  • The email should include: your full name, USMLE ID, test center location, brief summary of the issue (e.g., center closed due to inclement weather) and the ticket number from Prometric, if provided.  

The test center closure will be verified directly with Prometric. This takes several business days. Once the closure is verified, you will be contacted via email with detailed information for rescheduling your test date(s). A free extension of your eligibility period will be provided, if needed, to allow you time to reschedule.
