Download 345 from the ECFMG online forms page.

Get your USMLE ID, and apply for ECFMG certification. You have to pay an initial fee ~65 USD i think,, VIA IWA

Apply for the STEP 1 exam via IWA, pay the exam fees, and print form 186/183 Whichever they give you.

Send all documents required, and the form 186/183, and 345 to your medical school. The medical school rep in your school has to sign FORM 183/186, and send all required documents in a SINGLE envelope, with school seal behind it, DIRECTLY to ECFMG.

My uni, I had to pay a form verification fee of ~2k INR, once ECFMG got in touch with my school, after they received the envelope.

I hope this helps.

The envelope should contain
1. FORM 345(2 copies)
2. FORM 186/183
3. 2 PASSPORT SIZED PHOTOGRAPHS (in addition to the ones you stick on all forms)
4. 2X Photocopeis of your DIPLOMA/DEGREE (or) a letter from your institute head, stating that you have completed all formalities to recieve your diploma/degree
5. 2X Copies of your consolodated mark sheet.

This should leave from your uni, in a uni envelope, with the seal on the back!!

All the best.

I would re-check with your uni on that, if I were you! My university, supports receiving my side of documents by post, a phone call would be faster than emailing them.

Your signature is required on both the forms. So you have to post the print outs. They should be mostly familiar with the process. My university charges a fee to verify documents, which I have to pay, once ECFMG GETS BACK TO MY UNI.

All the best. My papers are on the way to ECFMG too.

okay I'm probably going to take the eligibility from dec 2015 to feb 2016 ,
for tht do i hav to wait for the 2016 bulletin of ecfmg n usmle to come or shall i register it now itself . And another big doubt of mine is applying for step 1 is it continous process with ecfmg authentication , i mean that if apply for ecfmg certification is it a must to immediately apply for steps can i give it a gap for few months before applying usmle
