degree issues-help please
hi guys,
i plan to give my step1 in march, and was about to register on ECFMG. but my internship will be over in late jun/july(if hopefully no repeats!), so i wont be getting my final degree for quite sometime.
my question is , how do i go about applying for step1 exam given without the final degree? can i do that without issues? what other documentation if any will i require to submit?

also, one of the words of my name (my father's actually) is typed as 'mohammed' on the passport and 'mohd' on the provisional degree and marksheets(this is despite me having always submitted my name as mentioned in the passport-mohammed icon_sad.gif ). now, i dont know which name my final degree will arrive with. will my final degree come up with 'mohd' or mohammed'? and if the former, is there any way i can prevent my name coming as 'mohd' on my final degree?

thanks a lot in advance for any advice

If u had read this thread, ur questions have been answered more than once.
U need to get a letter from ur dean's(prinicipal) stating the date when u'll complete ur degree. Apaprt from that
- Form 183, 187, 344, 345
- One passport photo

I guess it'll be same as on provisional degree. U can approach the University people and see if they can do anything about it. Like u can put in some application or affidavit, as reqd by them.

hi all,i knw i m being repetetive but pll tell me that is clinical clerkship the same as clinical rotation dat we do from 2nd yr .and in the form it is given write ur name as on ur degree.on my degree it s first written my surname and then my name so shud i write it in that order only.thanx.waiting for ur help

If u know u r being repetitive than why ask in d first place!!!! icon_eek.gif icon_eek.gif Please read the related discussions first so that we can save some of our time too by not having to answer the same questions nth time..

I think u shud write ur name as on d degree but for every confusion call up ECFMG n then act.

U can refer ur transcripts for that. Supervising physician in my case was the head of deptt. as mentioned by college people on my transcripts.

They're simple ur postings from 2nd to final year.

Yes supervisor for every posting slot can be different. but for a particular slot, only one i.e. the HOD.

u should apply as a graduate but make sure that you get a dean's letter stating that u have completed you mbbs. and MAKE SURE that the student section people aslo write the date that u will be recieving the degree. that is really really imp. otherwise ur application will REJECTED. as mine did. tell them to write . make it up.

pooarien
Aim USMLE Step 1

for chandy
chandy which form you mean?
form 186? you can sign it by college dean or notary public or consular
official or first class magistrate.

regarding the name>>if your name is same in ecfmg record ,on your degree and all other documents...you dont need any name proof.only if your name is different you need to confirm it.check ecfmg bulletin for more info on this matter.

P.S. be more clear in your queries.before applying first time for usmle read the ECFMG and USMLE bulletin carefully.


chandy

Its similar to ur clinical postings in MBBS but not exactly the same. So u better leave that item empty.

ur transcripts are supposed to mention them. Plz refer the step1 application thread for details on these things..

Kuttinguru I think most universities have the provision of issuing a degree earlier if u file an application. At least Rajasthan University gave it to me easily for a charge of Rs. 50! icon_smile.gif Just call up or visit ur university to confirm.

Plz go thru the step1 application thread for detailed info..
