Systems and Disciplines are as per reported by NBME for Step 1 performance (*exceptions described below), and also described in the USMLE Step 1 content outline http://www.usmle.org/pdfs/step-1/2016content_step1.pdf (“traditionally defined disciplines” listed on p. 4 of this document, Systems listed in Table 1, p. 5).

1-3Combines systems listed in content outline above into broader categories, as per NBME reporting for Step 1 performance; 3Includes Pregnancy, Childbirth, & the Puerperium; Female Reproductive System & Breast; and Male Reproductive System.

*Biostatistics - titled “biostatistics and epidemiology” in Step 1 content outline but reported out only as Biostatistics at UCSF.

*Pathology (Cell/Tissue) – UCSF-created category, specific to gross/tissue pathology; USMLE Pathology category corresponds to mechanisms of disease and diagnosis.

*Pathophysiology – UCSF-created category corresponding to mechanisms of disease and diagnosis; not a category in Step 1 performance reporting.
