USMLE claims testing will resume on May 1
– Prometric pushed back date of re-openign to May 31 (from May 1) with the following language: “We have determined it is necessary to further extend the closure of test centers in the U.S. and Canada through May 31st. This applies to all testing programs, with the exception of a limited set of essential services programs.” ( https://www.prometric.com/corona-virus-update )
– USMLE tweeted that they are “essential” and therefore will reopen on May 1 ( https://twitter.com/TheUSMLE/status/1253373119458353152 https://usmle.org/announcements/?ContentId=272 ); more info hopefully to come
