But first of all, What is USMLE?
USMLE is an abbreviation for United States Medical Licensing Examination. It enables you to be qualified as a medical practitioner in the United States. There are 3 steps for USMLE; which means there will be 3 times of examination.

This step asseses whether you understand and can apply important concepts of the science basic to the practice of medicine, with special emphasis on principles and mechanisms underlying health, diseases, and modes of therapy. Step 1 ensures mastery of not only the sciences that provide a foundation for the safe and competent practice of medicine in the present, but also the scientific principles required for maintainance of competence through lifelong learning.

This step assesses wheter you can apply medical knowledge, skills, and understanding of clinical science essential for the provision of patient care under supervision and includes emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention. Step 2 ensures that due attention is devoted to principles of clinical sciences and basic patient-centered skills.

This step assesses whether you can apply medical knowledge and understanding of biomedical and clinical scince essential for the unsupervised practice of medicine, with emphasis on patient management. Step 3 provides a final assessment of physicians assuming independent responsibility for delivering general medical care.

What Does Your Sponsors Say About USMLE?
Both JPA and MARA sponsors allow their students to sit for this exam as long as it does not overlap with JUST examinations. Students are requested to prior the JUST examinations instead of USMLE in terms of dividing your time for studying. The examination fees should be on students' own expenses.

However, for JPA students, you are only allowed to work in the United States AFTER you finished the 10 years agreement with the government. Students are not allowed to delay their government service. Students are suggested to consult En. Norhasmat for further questions regarding JPA policies.

As for MARA students, you need to inform and apply MARA's permission before register for the examination.

Interested in Becoming Medical Practitioner in Other Counteries?
Students are advised to refer to Dr. Yousef al-Qaud in the faculty of Medicine in JUST for more details as usually each contry has their own special examination to qualify the medical Practitioners.

See you at the Red Hall!
