Question Waiting for verification from medical school?

Hey everybody,

My form 186 got accepted by the ECFMG on the 12th of April. Now on OASIS, my status is "waiting for verification from medical school". What does this mean? I've asked the relevant people at my med school about this, but they are either unaware of it or unwilling to help (I'm betting on the latter). How long does this normally take? When do I receive my scheduling permit?

You don't need credentials verification to get scheduling permit. The ECFMG should send you the permit as you have validated Form 186.

Hi

That means that your medical school participates in EMSWP & so you need to tell your school to verify your request by logging into their account. You will get your scheduling permit instantly. Same thing happened with me so I know.

Read my previous post. You need to tell your college to log into their EMSWP & verify you.

I'd suggest you wait till you give your exam. Because you aren't supposed to give your exam until you have finished your basic sciences. So tell your school to do verification after your exam. The scheduling permit comes instantly when they verify you through the portal.
