Hi everyone

Is anybody out there preparing for or has prepared for Step III.
Could you please give a bit of info as to what the requirements are to schedule it and so on..

Wht I knew is for IMG (like for me ) it is good to have step III ASAP, and it just a pass they are intetersted in seeing as opposed to real numbers like in step I an II.

Would appreciate any input.

Different states vary on their requrements before you take Step III. Some states require internship (in Iowa it is 6 months) before you are eligible for Step III. Some states don't require internship. The IMG at U of Iowa match first and then take Step III after internship.
