Dr. Nora on USMLE Step 1 results

Thursday, July 14, 2020

The results of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) have been announced and our 2013 Charter Class did extremely well. 98% of TCMC third year students have passed Step I of the USMLE.

This is another milestone for TCMC. On behalf of the TCMC community, I congratulate our students who have worked hard to achieve this accomplishment. As a new medical school, we take great pride in these results – last year 92% of all US/Canadian first-time test takers passed the exam. I thank our faculty and staff whose dedication and efforts helped to accomplish this important step for TCMC.

Step I of the USMLE determines whether medical students can apply important concepts of the basic sciences to the practice of medicine and can demonstrate a foundation for the safe and competent practice of medicine.

Congratulations to all!

Lois Margaret Nora, MD, JD, MBA
TCMC Interim President and Dean
