Prometric, which administers the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), has resumed limited testing at select centers. Prometric had previously suspended all testing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In its continued effort to identify alternate-delivery methods, the USMLE Program has opened additional regional testing centers at medical schools, including one at the UCSF School of Medicine for administrations of Step 1 and Step 2 Clinical Knowledge. At this time, the UCSF regional testing center will only serve students from:
- UC Davis School of Medicine
- UC Riverside School of Medicine
- UC Irvine School of Medicine
- Stanford University School of Medicine
Students from these schools will be contacted by their medical school dean. Students should wait to hear from their deans before taking any action to schedule or cancel a Prometric test center appointment.
Each medical school, in collaboration with Prometric and the USMLE program, will schedule eligible students for USMLE testing.
