Slide notes:Licensure is regulated by each state and requires successful completion of the United States Medical Licensing Examination or USMLE [U-S-M-L-E] (although exam requirements may vary from state to state). The USMLE is a nationally administered exam with three steps. Step one tests the application of basic science to clinical practice and typically is required at the end of the first two years of medical school. Step two is divided into two partsa written test of clinical knowledge and a test of clinical skills using actors portraying patients. This test is usually required for graduation from medical school. Step three tests more applied clinical knowledge and is usually taken after the first year of residency. 11
