It’s no doubt that the USMLE STEP 1 is the single greatest factor for being selected into a residency. Over the past years, the school has graduated many doctors who are now successful physicians throughout the United States, Canada and in other countries. The school has strived to improve its program and curriculum to ensure the success of its students. Recently, Saint James School of Medicine became the first school of its kind to offer a guarantee on the USMLE STEP 1.
The USMLE is a three-step exam that provides medical licensure to top scoring students, and is sponsored by the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME). According to the USMLE website, the test “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.”
While the overall USMLE pass rate for each step averages at around 94 percent, dropping to 75 percent for international medical school graduates, Saint James students boasted an impressive 100% USMLE pass rate since July 2016.
At Saint James, we’re confident in the caliber of our education, and our commitment to USMLE test prep. We GUARANTEE that you will pass the USMLE STEP 1 examination on the first attempt after successfully passing the NBME comprehensive or the school will pay for a review program of your choice, up to $5,000.
This is an unprecedented move by the school, and one that should engender confidence in both the current student body and prospective medical students.
