    From most of what I've gathered, your USMLE score seems to matter more than grades (as long as you've at least passed everything). However, for PM&R, is your first year Anatomy grade particularly important?

    I can't speak specifically about the grades, but the knowledge is huge. I am biased, but I think PM+R is probably more dependent on a knowledge of anatomy than any other specialty. The amount of anatomy you need to know is tremendous- for MSK, SCI, TBI, electrodiagnosis, bladder managemnt, pelvic floor, etc. It's incredible.

    So, learn as much as you can. That time will be well invested.
