Preparation for the USMLE Step 1 Exam is an important part of the Saba University Basic Sciences curriculum.
The USMLE Step 1 Exam is widely considered one of the most difficult of all professional licensing evaluations, comprising about 350 multiple-choice questions in seven one-hour test blocks.
The university provides extensive preparation in a fifth semester course titled "Foundations of Clinical Medicine". At the beginning of this course, you are given a diagnostic pretest to help identify problem areas and individualize learning goals. At the end of the course, you are administered a full-length simulated comprehensive exam. This exam takes place in a state-of-the-art test center on the Saba campus that was specifically designed to simulate the conditions under which you will take the USMLE Step 1 Exam.
In short, Saba University is committed to doing everything possible to help ensure your success on this all-important exam. Saba University students’ 99% USMLE Step 1 first-time pass rate speaks for itself.
