Step 3 scores are not weighted heavily in fellowships. Getting a fellowship, unfortunately, is more about "who knows who". Although, they may be interested in your OITE scores.

I did not have a single fellowship ask for my OITE or Step 3. I wanted to take step 3 as early as I could before I forgot all that stuff. Three years later I am sure I made the right choice, as I would have to do a lot of review now, whereas at the end of my PGY1 year I still had some leftover medicine crawling around my brain from med school.

wondering if anyone has any advice re: Step 3...

what's a good time to take it? (Take it your intern year, some states have a residency time requirement, apply for it in a state like CA with no requirment and take it your intern year, you will only lose knowledge of things like peds and ob and medicine)

any good books to use? (Crush Step 3 and First aid step 3 for clinical scenarios)

Kaplan Qbank worth it? (no--you can probably find someone that has a pirated version)

how much does your score matter for fellowship, etc? (from all that Ive heard zero)

thanks,
orthogirl15

Hope this helps
