One concern with making Step 1 pass or fail is that students might dedicate less time for studying materials that form the basis of their medical knowledge to focus on other aspects of their application (which do not impact their medical knowledge). Taking time away from studying to do research or volunteering could be detrimental to students’ medical knowledge. Although research and volunteering are important, the goal of medical school is to graduate doctors with the best clinical experience possible.
