Graduates of international medical schools must take and pass all steps of the United States Medical Licensing Examination in order to be eligible to practice in the United States. This is an important requirement for AUC students who plan to obtain licensure to practice in the U.S.
Just as important: Residency directors will look carefully at your USMLE Step 1 score when they’re considering you for their residency program. Strong performance on Step 2 CK is also a key predictor of successfully attaining a residency. This makes it critical that you perform well on the exams.
The AUC medical school curriculum includes elements designed to prepare students to succeed on these important exams. In addition, AUC has partnered with organizations such as Becker Professional Education (Becker) and C3NY to make USMLE prep resources available to our students.
USMLE Step 1
Your Step 1 score significantly affects how competitive you are in the residency match. The medical sciences portion of AUC's curriculum, taught during students' first five semesters, includes USMLE preparation for Step 1.
USMLE Step 2
Step 2 CK and CS scores are becoming increasingly important to residency directors. The foundational knowledge our students receive through our clinical sciences curriculum is aimed at increasing student’s USMLE preparation for the Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK) and Clinical Skill (CS) sections.
AUC’s partnership with Becker and other educational partners, in addition to strategic initiatives led by institutional leaders, also strengthens students’ readiness.
