Passing the USMLE Step 1 is a critical step in progressing through medical school, especially for students at Caribbean-based medical schools smoothly and maximizing your chances of matching.
Although Step 1 has recently transitioned away from a numeric score, it is still essential to pass the exam and even more important to pass on the first attempt. In addition to passing the exam, higher performance on Step 1 is correlated with greater scores on Step 2 CK, which is now the most critical assessment of a residency applicant’s academic performance.
Join our USMLE Director Dr. Joel Ramirez and our most experienced tutors and graduates of Saint George’s University as they share their secrets to success and priceless guidance.
