If you need to receive Step 3 scores before March 27, 2019 USMLE recommends that you take the exam no later than December 31, 2018.
Most Step 3 scores are reported within four weeks of testing. However, because of necessary modifications to the test item pool, there will be a delay in reporting for some examinees who test in early 2019. The target date for reporting Step 3 scores for examinees testing in January and February 2019 is Wednesday, March 27, 2019.
No USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK, or Step 3 examinations will be administered January 1-14, 2019.
Examinees should monitor the USMLE website for the latest information.
