  I want to apply for the pathology programs and I wonder if a high impact journal article that I have could replace the importance of step 3 in the application review? I just heard pathology programs are generally not very interested in the step 3 exam. Thank you for your suggestions!

  It will be helpful if you are first author?

  Yes, I am the first author and the impact factor is 22 and the paper is on cancer biology. I am thinking to take step 3 but my time is very limited now. So I am thinking the program director may consider more on my paper instead of step 3, especially if I may fail step 3 given the limited time to review? Thank you for your suggestions!

  Impact factor of 22 is really great. If you are first author then u may have significant research experience as publishing a paper with that high impact takes time to have enough data. U must be working in research for quite sometime and may have other papers also.
Great chance to match in university hospitals.

  I am a postdoc in the US for four years. I received my PhD in Canada so I am an old IMG. Do you think in my case, can I avoid taking step 3 for the match 2021 but I can remain my competence with this high impact paper? Thank you for your suggestions!

  Then PhD is more than enough. Even stronger credential than step 3.
I think you have good chances.

  Best luck with your paper submission! It might take a while, if you need to publish your paper soon enough to meet the program deadlines this year, you can drop your paper at BioRxiv, though it is a bit controversial.
