About USMLE Step 2 CS Exam

USMLE Step 3 exam is the final exam in the USMLE examinations. It is part of the licensing requirements for Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) and international medical graduates to practice medicine in the United States. The USMLE Step 3 exam is considered the final step in the series of medical licensure examinations.


USMLE Step 3 assessments several perceptions that are often required to provide general health care to a patient. USMLE Step 3 is an obligatory exam that must be passed in order to get license as a practicing physician. Most of the USMLE Step 3 exam (75%) consists of multiple-choice questions, while the remaining 25% are clinical case simulations.


USMLE Step 3 examination tests on general topics that are required to recognise and practice concepts of general medicine/ family medicine.

The following components are tested:


  • Normal conditions and disease categories (normal growth and development, basic concepts, and general principles)


  • Clinical encounter frame (initial work up, continuing care, urgent intervention)


  • Physician task (applying scientific concepts, formulating a diagnosis based on history, physical exam, and lab findings, and managing the patient).


Clinical encounter frames are common clinical scenarios physicians may encounter. They range from nonemergency problems, to the continuity of care, to life-threatening emergency situations encountered in emergency departments, clinics, offices, care facilities, inpatient settings, and on the telephone. Each test item, in an encounter border, represents one of the six physician responsibilities. For example, initial care encounters accentuate taking a history and performing a physical examination. In contrast, continued care encounters emphasize decisions regarding prognosis and management.
