Registration now what after ECFMG Certification Information

i have just paid 50 USD through my relatives for the ECFMG CERTIFICATION INFORMATION.
this has lead me to on-line application part.

I am in a confusion as when my relative is going to pay for the exam fees instruction by instruction... in their computer.
So what happens after they do the payment?

does it immediately give an access to form 186. if that is the case and when i go online what if I do not get an access... what should i be advising them while paying for my step1?

Yes, paying for the exam would immediately give access to form 186. You have to ask them to print it right away, preferably a few extra copies in case you get something wrong while filling it.
I don't think you can gain access to it afterwards, the only time you will have access is when you finish your payment. You could ask your relatives to send it to you by post after printing it. But i think it would be better if you could do it yourself, viz. paying and printing. Surely they wouldn't have any problem in giving you their card details, would they

Default figured it out?

Hey Ubiquinone..! i'm kind of in the same fix too..
So did you figure out how you are going to go about this?
And is it true that you can access form 186 later through OASIS?
I really hope it is so :sorry:

Hello everybody, what it this ''ECFMG CERTIFICATION INFORMATION.'' ?? Ialready payed for my step1 elegibilty period, and got my form 186 signed by my faculty and sent it via DHL, as well as the online part was sent last week... I didnt come up against such an issue, ami missing anything?
Because form 186 was delivered to IWA via DHL and they got it 4 days ago (confirmed by online tracking)... But yet when i log into oisis\iwa, i can still reprint form 186, aw well oaisis says that ''waiting for certification of identification'' till now

I did recieve an email confirming that they got my online part of the app last week

Anyideas, please?

the 50 bucks is charged only from jan1, 2011.. you must have applied before that

just have a query, suppose i apply for my exam and do the payments, i can still access form 186 later and print it out? i'm worried 'cos i dont have a printer.

where are u from, i mean ur medschool now?
the deans doesnt have to say that on YOU form, ecfmg only cares about a signiture.. this signiture is already [previously] should be confirmed by ecfmg that this person signing is the authorized official..... they only match the signiture on ur 186 form, with the official signiture [i.e the dean's] in their database



in my school.. the person who was the one to sign them wasnt the dean, when he changed, another dr was the person in our faculty now incharge of signing the 186 form, but for all the students who applied for 186 directly after the change in personal... took some time for their app. to be processed only coz this time delay was due to [ecfmg had to confirm this new signature by this new dr in their database, instead of the old one]

so check with ur dean's office or with registration and admition stuff in ur uni.. and see hwos the person who has to be signing this thing..... if nobody is officially incharge and ur the very first one to apply.. call ecfmg and ask them, it wont hurt at least you'll be sure that ur doing it right, instead of having to wait 3 weeks and the DHL transport and then they inform you that smthg is wrong,,,, get it done from the start

good luck, hope that clears some points

thank u so much doc.

i am away from my university. so i have yet to dhl my 186 to them. i will make sure my friend on my uni to check for the official person... i guess clearing doubts is very important here than my forms being rejected later.

i have heard that i have to attest all the documents including degree diploma its translation copies by notary public and also the 187,344 and 345 ... is it so? coz I have everything ready except the stamp of the authority i.e., the notary public on the forms?

if this one is answered, I could well be on my way to THE NOTARY PUBLIC OFFICE and DHL office right then!

Help

now that i have already completed the online part and have printed the form 186 atleast i know that since 12 hours i still have an access to reprint.

Still have a doubt though:'

do i have to have all my other documents, like form 344,345 and 187 get signature and seal of the notary public?
