2-day computerized examination. The first day and a half tests your knowledge with a total of 413 traditional multiple-choice questions, which are arranged in blocks organized by one of the 3 clinical settings.

Day 1 includes 233 multiple-choice items divided into six 60-minute blocks of 38–40 items
Day 2 includes 180 items divided into 6 blocks of 30 questions. You will have 45 minutes to complete each of these blocks. The time allotted for these blocks is 3 hours. The second day also includes 13 clinical case simulations (CCS), preceded by a 5-minute tutorial. CCS cases vary from 10 to 20 minutes

The multiple-choice questions contribute 75 percent of your score on Step 3. They are the largest component of your exam. Don’t get so caught up worrying about CCS that you forget about the rest of the exam!
The minimum passing score for Step 3 is 196. This corresponds to answering approximately 60 to 70 percent of the items correctly
