Dingana 1 of the USMLE is a one-day test with just under 300 fanontaniana. This portion of the exam tests the student’s knowledge of the sciences as they relate to professional medicine, such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and others.

This aspect of the exam can make scheduling tricky. For starters, enrolling in different steps of the exam will need to be done at certain times in order to secure an exam date. The first two steps of this exam are handled by the National Board of Medical Examiners, or the NBME for short, with Step 1 usually scheduled during a student’s second year and Step 2 during the fourth year. Dingana 3 of the exam is regulated through the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), and is normally scheduled after the student has graduated med school during their first year of residency. Scheduling for all 3 steps of the exam can be done in three month periods of time, referred to by the NBME and FSMB as eligibility windows. For a given calendar year, these eligibility periods usually start around November of the prior year and end on December 31st. Once a student has scheduled their exam and paid the fee in one of these periods, an appointment is set some time in the subsequent 12 volana. Mpianatra Azo afindra ny daty fanadinana ao anatin'ny fe-potoana io, na mangataka éligibilité iray 3 volana fanitarana, fa izany dia matetika mitaky mandoa ny saran'ny rescheduling.

According to the NBME’s website, the initial cost to enroll in Step 1 ary ny Dingana 2 CK for 2018 is just over $600.
