USMLE program plans change in Step 1 score reporting

Published Date:

Excerpted from the United State Medical Licensing Examination

The USMLE program will change score reporting for Step 1 from a three-digit numeric score to reporting only a pass/fail outcome. A numeric score will continue to be reported for Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK) and Step 3. Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) will continue to be reported as Pass/Fail. This policy will take effect no earlier than January 1, 2022, with further details to follow later this year.

Learn more about this change on the USMLE website.
