The last of the USMLE STEP exams (STEP 3) is often taken during Intern Year. There is less chatter about STEP 3 than there is about the first 2 exams. Nevertheless, we all would prefer to be licensed physicians! Let's dive into the weeds about STEP 3.

- How did you prepare for STEP 3? Time commitment, resources, etc...
- Why is STEP 3 important? Is it used for job-searching and/or fellowship applications?
- When is the best time to take STEP 3?
- Do the clinical experiences of Intern Year prepare you for STEP 3?
