Registration Name in ECFMG record and Med school diploma

Hi,
I have mentioned the name as it appears in my Passport in the format first name/middle name/last name(eg,Pinku Ramesh Patil) ECFMG application I'll be using my passport as form of identification

Where as my school records, med school records, report cards, diploma etc my name is mentioned as first name.initial of my middle name.initial of my last name( like Pinku.R.P. )

In Item 22 it asks name as it appears in medical diploma where I filled as Pinku R P ..

Should I be producing any documents or signed letter from my dean or affidavit to ensure both are names of the same person.

Thank in adv.!!

You have to contact your medical school and ask them to give you a paper mentioning that they initialized your last name and that your true last name is such.

Then send that paper to ECFMG.

There's no problem in initializing the middle name, but initializing the last name is certainly a problem.

Otherwise you'll have problems with the ECFMG and your entire medical career in US.

Thanks for such a quick reply!

So I shall keep the name as it is in my passport in my ECFMG application and send letter from my med school regarding the name Disparity along with other forms for applying steps.

Ps: I have not yet scheduled a step or got my 186 form processed. Yet to send all required forms and documents to ECFMG. Should get any affidavit to be on safer side..
