Default Credentials Verification through EMSWP

Dear friends,

I would like to ask following question: I sent copies of my diploma along with other pertinent documents to ECFMG more than 2 weeks ago and have not heard from them yet. How does it work from now on? My school DOES participate in the EMSWP - will ECFMG request the verification through this portal or will they send the documents by post? And again, after my school recieves the credentials from ECFMG for verification, will they confirm their validity through EMSWP or will they have to send anything by post?

I am a little confused about the role of EMSWP in the verification process.

Is there any chance that I would be ECFMG certified by September 15 (I have finished all Steps, so the verification of credentials is the last thing i am waiting for)... Does anybody have experience with sending their diploma in the mid July and being certified by Sept 15?

Thank you so much!

All best,
Chrys

Hi,

I was in your situation last year. My med school also participates in this portal. So ECFMG will send them an electronic copy of your diploma, your school will verify it electronically via the portal and upload your transcript. That's it. End of story. No post required. It makes everything much faster and simpler. ECFMG will not contact you. They will contact your school to do all this. Since it is a busy time right now, they may be swamped with such processes. Still, you should remain in regular contact with your school to make sure your credential request is not sitting unopened in their portal inbox (or whatever it's called).

I sent my diploma in mid July and got my ECFMG certificate on 2nd September. It took so long only because my med school was lazy in verifying my diploma and uploading my transcript. That's why your should keep reminding them!!

Good luck!
