Hi, I am a USAF HPSP MS-II at an osteopathic medical school preparing for boards, Step I. It seems the overwhelming conventional wisdom is for osteopathic medical students considering civilian ACGME residencies to take the USMLE Step I in addition to the COMLEX. However, seeing as I am going to be participating in the military match, does this advice still apply? What is the general attitude in military GME about this? I am happy to do what is needed, but I don't want to hop on the bandwagon and take an unnecessary test. It isn't as if there's no risk to it... I'd appreciate any advice or comments... If it helps any, I'm currently thinking I want to go into IM. Thanks.
