Beginning July 1, 2012, there will be changes in the retention period for biometric information obtained as part of the standard test day procedures for computer-based Step examinations at many Prometric test centers. The changes will allow such information to be stored across USMLE Step exams.
The Biometric Enabled Check-in Program is designed to improve the security and integrity of the testing process. For more detailed information about the Biometric Enabled Check-in Program, including the Privacy Notice for USMLE Candidates, see Biometric Enabled Check-in Frequently Asked Questions.
