Default Form 327A

Hello doctors,
Im an asian IMG. I had my medical school send form 186 + all medical credential : Diploma (which is bilingual), Official transcript + English translate of transcript ( which is already signed and sealed by my DEAN -authorized official on file with ECFMG) , and of course form 187, 344, 345, photo etc...
Now my Status in OASIS
1. Form 186 is accepted and i got my schedule permit for step 1 ( it took me 4 weeks after ECFMG received the form)--> Good for me to take the exam now.
2. Medical education credentials received and verification is pending
Form 327A was sent to medical school.
Form 327-A is the form that ECFMG sends to your medical school to request verification of your final medical school diploma and a final medical school transcript.

Does that mean i have to contact School to process form 327A ( i wonder if they will receive it or keep it when the envelope arrive), make a copy of diploma, transcript, english translate of transcript ( which gonna be the same as all credentials sent to ECFMG) again. This process was so complicated and cost me a lot since I'm out of the country now.

I appreciate your advices or experiences on this problem.
Thank you.
PS: i don't even now what the form 327A looks like.

If you have the contact, call or email the person that you know from your med school. If they've done this before, they would know how to help you. Form 327-A would need to be sealed and mailed directly from the school to ECFMG to be accepted. Good luck!

Thank you anh,

All credential was signed and sealed by dean in 1 envelope with school stamp on it. If i have to re-do it, that step could be hurt. Do you have any details about the information on on form 327A and what i have to add in the envelope with the form 327A return to ECFMG. I know medical school will not do anything ( previous form 186 and credentials i prepared them all and asked a colleage to pay money for processing and sent them to ECFMG).

Best regard,
Minh

Hi Minh, I think they have to add a transcript (in English, otherwise ecfmg charges us $200 to translate). I just sent mine in about 2 weeks ago (express). I may call ECFMG tomorrow to see if they received them as it has not been updated on my ECFMG online account. Best!

Thank you anh,
Best luck for you i guess you re ready to be certified after taking all steps. I scheduled for my step 1 by the end of this year and may delay it if i feel not ready to have a high score.

Hi,
Based on what i know about form 327A- that is required your dean to read, verified and send back to ECFMG these following informations:
- About the medical traing program at your medical school.
- Some yes/ no question about you in the time you attended.
- They request an official transcript from medical School.

Keep in touch with the person who receives emails/ mails from international organization to make sure he/she keeps the form from ecfmg for you. Tried your best to have dean verified them all--> send back to ecfmg in one envelope.
Best regard,
