* States without 7 year rule for completing USMLE

  Dear All,
I would appreciate your reply as it would decide my future in USMLE step3. I am an old MG I took step 1 in 2009 and got ECFMG certified in Jun 2011.

For my personal reasons I am out of this race for a while. I was wondering is there any way I can complete my USMLE step 3 now.

In other words I am asking you if there is any state that would allow you to take USMLE step 3 beyond 7 years of taking step 1.


Thanks for all your help and support.

Good luck with your prep

  Does that mean you cannot take step 3 after more than 7 or 10 yrs of taking step 1?
Do you have to take step 1 again if you get a chance to do residency?

  Hi.

Once you are ECFMG certified, You cannot repeat step 1 or 2. You USMLE id will always have that record. You can also call ECFMG to verify that. The 7/10 years criteria for taking all steps is for state licensing. Also the FSMB has not updated their website and there is at least one state that I know does not have the 7 years time frame anymore, but the FSMB website says it does. So you have to call each state licensing place to find that out. But as far as step 3 goes there is no time limit I think as there are many states where you can practice after residency. Hope this helps. The best course will always be to call ECFMG and State Licensing bureaus.
