Certificate Finished all exams and credentials verified; when is the certificate?

I have gone through step 1, CK and CS, still waiting for my CS score.

My education credentials are "received and verified".

So what is the next step for me to receive the certificate? Should I just wait until the CS results are revealed and they will automatically send me the certificate or do I have to make a request, or pay fees???

The CS results are coming out kinda late, so I don't want any surprises that delay the match application even more... please help.

Smile You don't need to do anything

No you don't need to do anything.

Once you get your "pass" results of the CS they will automatically tell you in the same email that you have met all the requirements for the ECFMG certificate.

Few days after that, they'll send you the hard copy of the certificate (this is if you have a US address, if overseas it takes much longer).

Note that you don't need the hard copy of the certificate to apply in ERAS. Your exam results and ECFMG status are automatically updated.

So all you need to do is wait and pray for a pass
