One extension of the three-month testing period may be made via the NBME website, www.nbme.org. If, for some reason, you need to delay the exam beyond the established guidelines, you must receive permission from Dr. Anne Eacker, Associate Dean for Student Affairs. Approval for delay may be granted only for extraordinary circumstances.
If you do not secure a Step 1 testing date in a timely manner, your entry into the clinical curriculum will be delayed. Similarly, if you do not secure a testing date in a timely manner for Step 2 CK or CS, your continuance in the curriculum will be delayed. If you are unable to take Step 2 CK and CS by the required due date, your progress in the curriculum may be interrupted.
