One-on-One USMLE Step 3 Tutoring
Step 3 is your final hurdle before becoming a licensed US physician. The topics tested are the basics that are required to understand and practice concepts of general medicine/ family medicine.
The test is taken over two days. Day 1 (Foundations of Independent Practice [FIP]) is divided into six 60-minute blocks with each block having ~40 questions. The total number of questions on the FIP portion of the examination will be 233. The total testing day will be approximately 7 hours.
Day 2 (Advanced Clinical Medicine [ACM]) will continue to be divided into six 45-minute blocks of MCQs, and 13 computer-based case simulations (CCS). In total, there are 180 questions. The second half of day 2 will contain the 13 computer based simulation cases.

f.a.q. about our usmle tutoring
While your Step 1 score is extremely important, so is your Step 3 score especially if you are an international applicant. It’s also very important for fellowship.
Once! Unless you fail, in which case you can take it again. Unlike the MCAT, which you can take over and over, your first USMLE score is what you have to live with. Therefore, USMLE tutoring is exceptionally important so you can maximize your score the first time.
If you just want to pass the USMLE Step 3, and you are a US medical student, you likely will. The vast majority of students pass the test, but you shouldn’t be aiming to just pass. You must maximize your score in order to achieve the residency and/or job of your choice.
As an IMG, your USMLE Step 3 score plays an even bigger role than for a US graduate. Residencies need you to be clinically competent. If you are already practicing in another country, as an international, you should take Step 3 prior to applying for residency in the United States.
