In order to be a licensed physician in the United States all individuals must pass the United States Medical Licensing Examination. The USMLE assesses a physician's ability to apply knowledge, concepts and principles that are important in health and disease control and constitute the basis of safe and effective patient care. There are three levels of USMLE, each step compliments the other. No one step should stand alone.
The United States Medical Licensing Examination is a three-step process for a medical license in the United States and is sponsored by the following organizations:
Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB)
National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME)
The Composite Committee, appointed by the FSMB and NBME, governs the USMLE. The Composite Committee establishes rules for the USMLE program. Membership includes representatives from the following:
Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG®)
The purpose of the USMLE in the United States and its territories is for the individual medical licensing authorities in the various jurisdictions to use in granting licenses to practice medicine. Each medical licensing authority sets its own rules and regulations and requires passing an examination that demonstrates the qualifications for a license. Results of the USMLE are reported to these authorities for use in granting the initial license to practice medicine. The USMLE provides them with a common evaluation system for medical license applicants. The USMLE assesses a physician's ability to apply knowledge, concepts, and principles that are important in health and disease and that constitute the basis of safe and effective patient care. Each of the three Steps complements the others; no Step can stand alone in the assessment of readiness for a medical license. Because individual medical licensing authorities make their own decisions regarding use of USMLE results, you should contact the jurisdiction where you intend to apply for license to obtain complete information. Also, the FSMB can provide general information on medical licensing.
