  When you apply for step 3, the website directs you toward FCVS to initiate your credentials verification.. Should we do that?? Or is it after you complete residency??

Thanks

  The credentials verification is necessary when you are ready to apply for a licence in a state, not for taking step 3.
You can start the process now but you don't need until you are ready to apply for licence.
This process may take a long time (maybe 6 months or more) so do it before you comple your residency.

  don't we have to have temporary licence to start residency?? Do we have to do that or does the hospital take care of it?

  Depends of the program. Some programs require a temporary licence. The program will tell you what you need but step 3 is not required for that. Most hospitals require that you do that (for example they want your medical school send directly to them your transcrips). Some other programs just require a hospital permit and the process is easier.

  I don't have an answer for that. But I know a friend that got an H1 visa when she pass her step 3 nine months after starting the program.
