Introducing the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Preparatory Course at IMU

The International Medical University (IMU) is proud to announce the offering of the USMLE Step 1 (United States Medical Licensing Examinations) Preparatory Course. This will not only further benchmark the IMU medical course globally but provides a pathway for our graduates to train and work in the United States.

The Preparatory Course is blended into our IMU medical curriculum across Semesters 1 to 5 (August 2017 Intake onwards). Medical students joining from the August 2017 Intake won't be paying additional fees for the USMLE Step 1 preparatory course. This initiative will also be available for our current students (before the August 2017 Intake) and alumni at a discounted price. USMLE Step 1 preparatory course for IMU medical students and graduates is launched in partnership with Becker Professional Education. Becker is a US-based company promoting quality education and training for health professionals.

The programme provides USMLE Step 1 preparatory materials which includes recorded USMLE review lectures, ebooks, review books, question bank, live virtual interactive sessions and other learning materials. Such comprehensive materials are very useful for our students in preparing for the USMLE Steps.

Passing the USMLE Steps allows students to be eligible for US residency options and opens up additional pathways to obtain post-graduate qualifications. The USMLE is one of the tougher exams to pass and the challenge is to attain good scores to get a residency of choice.

What is USMLE?

Additional details on USMLE and Becker can be found at:

The United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) is a three-step examination for medical licensure in the United States and is sponsored by the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME).

The USMLE assesses a physician's ability to apply knowledge, concepts, and principles, and to demonstrate fundamental patient-centered skills, that are important in health and disease and that constitute the basis of safe and effective patient care. Each of the three Steps of the USMLE complements the others; no Step can stand alone in the assessment of readiness for medical licensure.
