USMLE Step 3 or COMPLEX Level 3 Reimbursement

New reimbursement for those in a core residency program.

In the new Agreement, the HOA negotiated the following:

For residents only, when taken prior to the House Officer’s final residency program year at the University of Michigan, the University will reimburse a House Officer for the application fee for USMLE Step 3 or COMLEX Level 3 examination. This reimbursement also applies to a resident completing a one-year transitional residency at the University. Reimbursement will be for the examination application fee only and reimbursement is available for one (1) attempt. 

A resident is eligible for reimbursement if they submit their score sheet to the Program along with the required documentation, as determined by their Department, to their CONCUR delegate or designee within 30 calendar days of receiving the exam results. For a resident in a one-year transitional residency, the completed reimbursement request and documentation must be submitted no later than June 1. 

This applies to those who may have paid for the exam last year, but are taking it after July 1, 2020, when the new contract took effect.
