    Cost of USMLE for IMGs differs according to the person himself/herself, you may buy all USMLE Qbanks, you may depend on free materials, You may make 12 months of observerships and research, or you may make 2-3 months, You may apply with Step 1 and CS only or you may apply with Step 1,2,3 and CS, You may get a chance to find a paid research and may not .... so on, but we will calculate average cost for USMLE Journey for IMGs which include USMLE Exam fees, books, qbanks, US healthcare experience and residency process.

    USMLE Step 1 Cost:
    USMLE Step 1 exam cost: 1050 $
    UWORLD Step 1 cost: 300 $
    NBME Step cost: 300 $
    Books and others cost: 500$

    USMLE Step 2 Cost:
    USMLE Step 2 exam cost: 1050 $
    UWORLD Step 2 cost: 300 $
    NBME Step 2 cost: 300$
    Books and others cost: 500 $

    USMLE CS Cost:
    USMLE CS exam cost: 1300 $
    Tickets and accommodation for CS Exam cost: 1000$
    CS Videos and Books: 500$

    Healthcare Experience: Observerships, Electives or Research for few months (Including tickets and accommodation) cost: 6000$

    Residency match process:

    Total cost for USMLE: 18.100 $

    So we can say the journey from USMLE to Residency in USA ranges from 15.000 to 25.000 US $

    Financial issue is a bid obstacle in the road for US medical residency, in addition to hard studying needed to pass these exams with high scores as most of the doctors travelling to USA are always dreaming about one of the competitive residencies there.

    Waiting to hear your opinions....
