Question After taking one step; the process of taking another step

Hi,

What is the process for applying step 2 ? I have already taken step 1.

Now for applying step 2, again I have to send my documents to my medical school and they will send them to ECFMG or I have to submit my application to ECFMG myself ?

I appreciate for reply in advance.

Its just like what u must have done during ur application for step 1..
Go to IWA -> start a new application for step 2 CK -> fill out the 22 questions -> pay the amount online -> and then they will generate the forms for u..

Now if u are a student u will have to fill up form 183 which will be generated..
If u are a graduate , then a form 186 will be generated..
both of the forms are to be signed by ur medical school if u have not got ur medical education credentials verified..

If u have got ur medical education credentials verified then u can fill the form 186 and get it signed from a notary..
Hope this helps...

hey aknz,

i am too done with step 1 recently.

to apply if all your medical credentials and certification of identification are done , you just need to complete the online part and pay the fees.
if any of these are remaining ie certificate of identification(183/ 186) is remaining you need to do signing and send it to ecfmg.

Thanks for reply.

My oasis status for form 186 is valid from sep 2011 to sep 2016.

ECFMG has sent my documents to my medical school for verification (form 327-A) about 3 months back and at the same time,also sent a written letter to me that we have sent your documents to your medical school,now the status at my oasis account ,verification from my medical school is still pending but during the same time,I gave my step 1 and got my result about one month back.

Now I am confused, my form 186 is valid but verification of my medical school credentials is pending, what should I do?

Should I send my documents notary and send to ECFMG myself for step 2 or should I have to send them to my medical school?

My status for form 186 is valid, I have to sign it myself, notarize it and send it to ECFMG or should I have to send it again to my medical school

If u have a form 186 on file.. then u just have to start an application for step 2 Ck.. answer the questions and pay the money online..
they will accept ur application and within a week and u will get the scheduling permit..
U dont have to fill any forms or post anything..

U dont need to go through the whole process again..
