one ponders, what is usmle? what is special in usmle exams? why we have to take usmle for getting a license ? so in this post I am going answer all your questions about USMLE .
United States Medical Licensing Examination is a series of exams for assessing a physician’s ability to use concepts, knowledge and skills in clinical practice. All your skills you learnt in Medical School are put to test by some solid questions. The idea of conducting USMLE is too evaluate not only you as a future doctor but to compare you with hundreds of others and let the Hospital Programs have the best one working for them. So a good score gives you a good chance for getting residency.
