Step 3.. and then what?!

Step 3 test taking strategies, test preparation materials and centers

Step 3.. and then what?!

Postby ophir_keret » Wed Oct 10, 2012 3:55 am

I am a physician currently performing my internship at my home country of Israel. I have several questions regarding the final steps of medical licensure in the USA.


During my years at medical school I became aware of the importance of obtaining a license to practice medicine in the USA. I had no specific goal in mind, my wish was to obtain a license so that "one day" if I wish, I may be able to work in the USA (work being as a resident, fellow or full time practice). "Leaving the door open", and taking the test at the best time possible where my primary objectives.


I have successfully completed my ECFMG certification at December 2011, and plan to soon start my residency in my home country of Israel. I still wish to complete my licensure and perform the USMLE step 3 next year, in hope that I may work/perform a fellowship in the USA after completing my residency here (Israel).



My inquires:

1. Assuming I pass step 3, what are the additional requirements for obtaining a permanent license?

2. Are there any exams / fees/ requirements needed for the maintenance of a permanent license?

3. May I perform a board exam of my residency, even if I do not perform the residency in the USA?

4. Is there any path towards working as a specialist in the USA without performing a residency in the USA in my current status?

5. Any other information you may deem relevant would be highly appreciated



Thank you in advance for all your help

Sincerely

Ophir

You need to complete 2-3 years (depending on state) of residency training in the US to be eligible for US license.
