General Surgery (Importance of USMLE)
The USMLE is an important factor in the general surgery residency selection process.
In 2016, the mean USMLE Step 1 score among matched U.S. seniors was 235. Among unmatched U.S. seniors, the mean score was 218.
Applicants with lower USMLE scores need to strengthen their credentials in as many areas as possible, and work closely with an advisor to develop a strategy for match success.
