The United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®) program recognizes that the testing shutdown has created great stress, uncertainty, and disruption for examinees and medical schools, affecting academic progression, curricular schedules, and application for residency. The USMLE program is doing everything it can to make decisions that prioritize the safety and health of examinees and test center staff as they develop plans to resume testing.
Beginning April 17, 2020, the USMLE program will post weekly updates on its website and social media channels, in addition to announcements, as soon as decisions are finalized.
Examinees can read the full announcement on the USMLE website and should continue to monitor the USMLE website weekly for the latest update. As always, the USMLE program will update its FAQs regarding USMLE and COVID-19 (Coronavirus) as frequently as possible.
