International Medical Graduates or IMG's must be certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). To become certified by ECFMG, an IMG must pass USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK and Step 2 CS. Starting in 2005, doctors can take these exams in any order (previously Step 1 was a prerequisite for Step 2 CS). Once a doctor receives ECFMG certification, he/she may apply for a hospital residency or graduate medical education . Step 3 is always taken LAST in the series of medical licensing exams because IMG's must be ECFMG Certified to be eligible to take Step 3. Some states allow doctors to take Step 3 prior to obtaining a residency. Many doctors perceive that having passed Step 3 enhances their chance of obtaining a residency. This may be true in some cases, but high scores and strong interviews are the most important factors in attaining residency.
