Some physician graduates have been urged to complete Step 3 before applying for internship or residency but is Step 3 going away?

Since USMLE Step 2 CS has been discontinued, should USMLE Step 3 be the next board exam to be discontinued?

Why should many physicians be required to complete 4 exams in addition to board certification exams to become a licensed doctor in the USA?

What are your thoughts and experiences?

I agree this is a worthless exam designed to generate money for FSMB/NBME and raise the already high stress levels of physicians
