i think not compulsory,ecfmg asks our transcrit from college directly,if the college does not post them then we have to submit.but it is best if we submit them.

Yes, as danan said, its not necessary to submit it with your application but if you have it with you, there's no harm in sending a photocopy with your application.

Hi,

I got the form 183 ultimately. Should it be necessarily sent from the deans office.
I think there would be some delay it to be sent from the deans office. Instead can i send it to ecfmg once certified by the dean ???

pls advice.....

once the form 183 has been sent to the ecfmg, what will happen next ??

thanx

No you can send Form 183/186 yourself. I am sure about it, a friend called up ECFMG just a couple of days ago to confirm this.

Once you sent your complete application pakcage including from 183, ECFMG starts processing yopur application in 2 parts. First is Step1 application which is accepted in 2-4 weeks.

Second is your credential verification which starts simultaneously but goes independent of Step1 application and takes upto few months.

If you sent Form 344, 345 etc you don't need to send any papers now. Only online application would suffice. Credentials would be verified by your parent college.

Apply as soon as possible to get dates comfortably. You can do that 6 months before the start of your slot.

anything to be sent other than form 183
Hi AshB,

thank you for the advice.

when you say package.., what other things must be sent with the form 183.

I'm awaiting my final MBBS results, applied as a student, no transfers, no other special things.

I thought i would have to send only the form 183. I guess i don't have to send form 344 & 345 'cos i don't receive my degree yet.

please clarify my doughts !!!!

please reply quick........

Also read ECFMG information booklet for updated information.

This things have NO effect on you application. These are administrative issues purely concerning ECFMG, ERAS etc. Programs don't care at all about it.

There is a name change form thats available on Oasis i guess but i have thin idea baout it. Read the ECFMG information booklet and/or call up ECFMG for accurate info.

I took step 1 on 17th december 2007 and til now I didnt get any email regarding the results nor did I got something in the "score report Information" column in OASIS.

Are these the only ways to get to know ones result or there is some another website where results are put up?

No there is no other way except oasis. Due to holiday season in US they are taking more time than usual for everything.

Good luck for the score.

National ID No. problem
Dear All,

While filling up the online application, I am not sure as to what to enter in the National ID No. item, as we as Indian nationals do not have any National ID No.s given by our Govt.

Should we enter our passport no. and while doing so should we mention that it is a passport no. in the box provided.

Making an entry is mandatory according to the instructions.

Kindly help me in this.

Thanks and Regards,
Sly

Dear AshB,

Thank you so much for clarifying my doubt.

Few other areas have proved a bit of a hassle.

1.In Item no.18:
a]When I entered the graduation date ,I entered the date on which I finished my final prof.But on submitting the same I was told that the graduation date could not be before the ''completion of requirements for medical diploma'' date[Had entered the internship completion date for''completion of requirements for medical diploma''].

2.In no. of years attended under the Days Of Attendance what is the figure that we should put in the box.I did my MBBS from India.

Kindly advise regarding these.

Looking forward to your response.

Thanks & Regards,
Sly

@ Villatorino, me too from RGUHS.
If You completed your internship in april 2008, then expected month of receiving your degree certificate is may/jun 2009.
You can get a letter from dean stating the same.


karthik_sm

Guys, i had a doubt,

While filling in the application it is said that the photocopies should be of 8.5 inches by 11 inches in size.

I wanted to know whether i should send even the form 186, 187, 344, 345 in the same size??

Its annoying to keep searching in stationary shops for odd size paper (everyone says A 4 is available)

Also should i send the photo in US passport size or Indian Passport size is fine??

Thanks a lot

Regards,
Karthik

Hi all, could someone please help me out on the following?

Took final prof in Oct 2004
Completed internship in Dec 2005,
Received MBBS certificate in April 2006

BUT the certificate says that the degree was conferred on me in Oct 2004. What dates should I use for:

- Date you completed requirements for the final medical diploma
- Graduation date
- Date medical diploma issued

I assumed that internship completion date should be the date for completion of requirements. But the MBBS certificate says that the degree is conferred in Oct 2004. The online form won't let me proceed saying that graduation cannot be before completion. Should I put graduation date as April 2006 when the degree was given to me during convocation? I am not sure why they have mentioned Oct-2004 in the certificate, because the requirements were not completed then. Just that the final year exams took place in that month.

Could someone please help out?
Thanks!


karthik_sm
Aim DM Neurology

I think you should enter the month u finished your internship as your completed requirements for medical diploma and graduation date. And
month you received your degree certificate as date ur medical diploma was issued to you.

Just confirm again.

Its given in IWA instructions that it will take 5 WORKING DAYS, that means it excludes saturday and sunday.

So its better u wait for 6 days atleast, excluding sat and sun. If u havent received mail from them, check your spam folder just in case.

Otherwise u can always call them and know the status.

karthik_sm

You can write native language as Hindi, I dont think it matters.

But if u still worried, write native language as English and other known languages as hindi.

U can get a letter from Dean stating your medium of education was English.

PLZ HELP SOMEONE URGENTLY AS I AM HIGHLY CONFUSED WHAT TO FILL


mango111


I filled up the ECFMG form
1. Because the language is confusing, I filled in the details of my Internship in place of the clinical clerkships (I should have filled in the 2nd and 3rd MBBS clinical postings). How do I change it? Can I cancel this form and restart another form? What happens to the mudra that I have already paid them?

2. My stupid sarkari college does not have any records of my clinical postings, are not giving me any details either. The only transcript that I got from these [bleep] shows the hours attended in each department (Biochem, patho, medicine etc)

3. My college principal in typical sarkari istyle signed On the photograph instead of below it. is this ok with the ECFMG walas or are they going to hanker about this.

please can u specify whether clinical clerkship starts after u finish mbbs 9 th term or it starts in 3rd term upto 9th term . does it include the clinical internship of 1 yr after 9 term

Hi DrShanmukh!
You are exactly in the same position as me. You need not submit a xerox of your prov. certificate. Instead you need to attach a letter stating that you have completed all the requirements of your graduation and you will be issued your degree certificate on x-y-z date (on the letterhead of your school), which has to be duly signed by "registrar/dean/vice dean" of your medical school. This will be send along with form 186 , form 187 and a passport size photgraph from from the Office of your medical school. You need to send form344 and form 345 along with a copy of your degree certificate as soon as it is issued . Hope this helps!
( I assume you have are a graduate ie completed your internship, cus if u havent..the procedure is different)
