Prometric is hopeful that the COVID-19 situation in many markets continues to improve, providing more opportunities to support USMLE test takers. We will continue to review local & state guidelines to ensure centers are open and operational where permitted to do so.

We will continue to review our social distancing requirements and make determinations on whether we can preserve future appointments or if they need to be cancelled due to our inability to test at specific locations, based on local and state guidelines.

When such a decision occurs in the future, Prometric will process the cancellation and send you a notification that your appointment has been cancelled, so you can schedule a new appointment.  Please note that last minute cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances can occur, in which case you will receive a pre-communications letting you know your appointment has been cancelled, with a follow up email letting you know when it has been updated in the system so you can schedule via self-serve. Our goal is to ensure you have current, accurate information to support your assessment needs.
