The sponsors of the United States Medical Licensing Examination program (Federation of State Medical Boards and National Board of Medical Examiners®) have agreed, in response to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, to waive fees for eligibility period extensions and testing region changes effective immediately.
This temporary fee waiver is intended to give examinees flexibility in scheduling examinations during the COVID-19 outbreak. The USMLE program will continue to monitor the situation for any significant changes in the course of the pandemic that might warrant further action in order to protect the health of examinees, staff, and the general public.
If you reside in or have recently traveled to any country subject to a travel notice, or if you might have come in contact with anyone with suspected coronavirus infection, and/or have concerns about your health and/or the health and safety of those with whom you might come in contact, you should reschedule your examination. If you have any questions, please contact the organization that registered you for your examination.
Examinees should monitor the USMLE website for the latest information.
