It got rejected for a diffrerent reason......they had issues with the language of my dean's letter ( which u give if u have graduated but not got degree)
But it got accepted once I sent them the new letter.
Otherwise no issues with dates.

hmmm
okk !! thanx anyways.but someone in this forum said that the date of fulfilling the requirements for the final medical diploma is the date of completion of internship ... and the date of graduation is -- the date when u passed ur final MBBS exam .what do u think about that. when does a medical student is called a GRADUATE?


google_singh
Aim MBA

Yep, I tried filling in the same thing, but the IWA wont allow me. It gives message something like" ur graduation date cannot be earlier than sate of completion of internship"

Try filling in an earlier date, I think u will get that msg too.

I recommend u submit ur form in MAy coz of new guidelines....by which u can get slot of MAY-June_july even if u submit ur form by May 24

Hi! everyone. I have posted a querry regarding the Name problem. I have went thru the whole thread and never got the answer. the persons who encountered the same problem were DR. Sarvyaa, Dr patel subhash kumar. but they never posted again what they did and wat was the results? hw they manage with the problem finally? My querry is mY name written on the certificates are KANWAR PARSHANT SINGH. In my passport and US authentication form as
Last name or Surname as-------KANWAR
Given name as--------------------PARSHANT SINGH.
Nw while filling the application fr step 1 one of the colomn ask ----is ur name on ur certificates and ecfmg record the same.
Now I am in Dilemma as according to me its not a name change, we can make our surname as suffix or prefix.it hardly maters . m
My querry is whether it is considered the name change by ECFMG PEOPLE.
Neither Doc. sravyaa nor Doc. Patel posted the solution,,,who faced the same problem.plij do reply if u people r keeping an eye on dis forum. Help us too docs.

Dr Kanwar the simplest and easiest approach is to call up ECFMG for ur query. And don't forget to post the solution here, unlike others.

Usually when there is a disagreement between the two names, they ask u to submit a letter from the Dean of ur college that both are the same person. But its better always to call them up and find out specific solution to ur problem.

Hi! everybody. I have got the solution to my problem regarding name problem. here I am posting it for the benefit of others. icon_lol.gif I called at ECFMG T oday and they solved my problem.They said that its not considered as the name change. icon_razz.gif icon_razz.gif icon_razz.gif
They said they just need a clarification frm the DEAN of the college frm where I have got my Medical degree which should have the following statement....
KANWAR PARSHANT SAINGH Or PARSHANT SINGH KANWAR is the same person and has graduated frm our colllege.

And one thing more its not considered as name change by ECFMG,and thus no need to submit an application form regarding name change. This very step regarding verification frm the DEAN office is fr our benefit. according to them they will send the verification to our college bearing name as Dr. Parshant Singh Kanwar.I n dis case college may reject dis name as my name has been saved as Dr. Kanwar Parshant Singh in their records. So when I will get that Name verificatin frm college,they will update my all records.And when the verification frm USA will come they will promptly sign that forms saing "Yes, dis student has graduated frm our college"
So dis is fr our benefit to be on safer side and to avoid later on,unforseen Harassment.Te fotocopy of dis form should be sent along with the other form .
More important is THIS NAME VERIFICATION MUST BE DONE BY DEAN OF THE COLLEGE FRM WHERE THE STUDENT HAS GOT HIS OR HER MEDICAL DEGREE. NOTTT FROM NOTARY.[coj when i ask them whether it can be verified frm the notary, she promptly said NO,it must be verified frm Dean.]
Hope dis will help the students like me who have been struck at this point. icon_lol.gif icon_cool.gif icon_cool.gif icon_cool.gif

clinical clerkships
hi everyone!!

i'm stuck up at 'clinical clerkships' section on my online application.
should i include subj like anat/micro/comm medicine or only the final year subjects like med/surg/obs??

my med school provided me with the transcripts which has the duration for these subjects in HOURS rather than the month/yr format asked in the online form... just stuck up how to EXACTLY convert it into that format...

thanks buddies...

P.S.: what stuff is included in TRANSFER CREDITS??!! icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif

hi ,clininical clerkship means if u get your degree after intership like house job mention those period .well in pakistan ,you can get degree without house job .i have no idea about the country you belong .when i was filling my form i left it blank and i got my SP as per schedule so it is better to talk with ECFMG representative but according to my knowledge clinical clerkship means house job .but i left it blank BY GOD .if i m wrong kindly correct me takecare and all the best


Whiterose

CLINICAL CLERKSHIP REFRS 2 THE PERIOD OF CLINICAL ROTATIONS DURING MEDICAL COLLEGE,2ND PROF ONWARDS,,IN INDIA.

DAT MAY ALSO INCLUDE UR INTERNSHIP ROTATIONS.

IN ONLINE APPLICATION FORM 186,
U NEED 2 FILL THE COLUMN OF CLINICAL CLERKSHIP WID UR MEDICAL COLLEGE CLINICAL ROTATIONS[MED STUDENTS] OR INTERNSHIP ROTATIONS,,OR EVN BOTH[MED GRADUATES]--IN MNTH/YR PATTERN ONLY.


DEVIRANTE,U CAN EITHER CONTACT UR MED SCHOOL N GET ORIGINAL DATES OF CLERKSHIP N FILL THEM,

OR CHALK OUT APPROX DATES 4 EACH ROTATION N FILL.

I didn't write in the clinical clerkship column, as many others on rxpg did. And hope fully everything is going on smoothly till now.
Writing clinical clerkships is too complicated for my medical college, the transcript is in another format.

No, provisional degree is not accepted. You have to either submit copy of your original degree or a letter from your dean stating the date when the degree will be available.
