Mail ECFMG Certificate; How long does it take?

How long does it take to get your ECFMG certificate after you have passed all the USMLE exams!

This is a question that have been posted several times by our members. Therefore, I thought it might be a good idea to start a poll and let's see how long it takes.

Couple of important things to remember;

First) If your certificate got delayed because of medical education credentials verification then please do not vote in this poll.

Second) we are talking here about the duration from the date you passed the last step (it can be any step) until the date you've seen that the certificate has been issued in your OASIS account, (not the date you actually received it in the mail).

Let's go vote folks ...

Now if u really want to apply for step now...you will have to complete that form and pay the amount of 1000 dollars (for IMG) and then u will be given certificate of identification form automatically. after that payment, u r bound to give ur step in the triplet u have selected in the form. Yes if u do not complete the form withn 14 days..u will have to fill it again. That does not mean that u will lose ur log in, ur log in is now valid permanently. u can anytime in ur life..fill the form and opt for steps.

No, you cannot get it without paying 1000 dolars and selecting a triplet. As much as i know becase i have my step 1 on 18th dec and i went thru the same steps. You can even select a triplet of as late as oct-nov-dec 2015 bu if if u do not want to give it then even, dont go for certification of identification now. opt it about 6 mo before u plan for steps. It barely takes a month and a half if everything goes fine, which usualy does..
