USMLE Stands for the United States Medical Licensing Examination. The USMLE assesses a physician’s ability to apply knowledge, concepts, and principles, and to demonstrate fundamental patient-centred skills, that are important in health and disease and that constitute the basis of safe and effective patient care.

6 months before the USMLE test, go through Pathoma and First Aid. 3 months before the test, get UWorld. Do all of it, read the explanations. 4 weeks before the test, do some NBME practice tests. If you can do all that well, you should get a 240 or above for sure, and possibly 250+.
