Resident [Any Field]
I am currently reviewing for step2CK and plans to take it on May. . I came across about the special requirement for those who wants to apply residency in california which is the PTAL or formerly known as California letter. This usually takes 6 months to a year. My problem is I have only taken step1. Can i apply for this letter so that i can get this letter sooner. also, do the scores you get in the USMLEs exams matter in getting this letter? thank you

this is a good question. you might have better luck posting it again in the general residency section, since most people in this forum seem comfortable just commenting on topics related to Step 2.
