Form ECFMG Forms Confusion

hey!!
I have filled in my on line part of the application for step 1 and am still a student doing my one year compulsory internship before I graduate.
When I had paid my exam fees and looked out for the hand filled forms that I was supposed to fill I saw just 2 forms.
Form 186 and form 187..I have taken out there print outs.
Now the problem that am facing is in form 187 (IWA document submission form) they r asking for the submission for 1 or more of d following documents which are:
-Medical education credentials including final medical diploma (form 344)
-Medical school release request (form 345)
-Transcript(s) to document transferred credits (form 344)

So which all forms am I required to submit and where do I obtain them from so that I can take out their print outs?

Am really confused please reply soon..

Arrow Clarification

If you read the first page of form 187, you see written the following:
Do not send Form 187 if there are no additional documents required to complete your application or if you are submitting a Certification Statement (Form 183) or Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) only.

In your case, you are still undergrad. So you don't have medical school transcript or diploma so you don't need to send Form 187, or Form 344 or Form 345. That's why they were not presented to you when you completed the online application.

However, if you insist. Here are the links to what you are looking for
For Form 344 http://www.ecfmg.org/forms/form344.pdf
For From 345 http://www.ecfmg.org/forms/form345.pdf

Let us know what are you going to do and what the ECFMG will answer you.

Thank you rasheed. I too am currently in my internship year beginning from march 2012. So I guess I will be considered a student. So do I need to first pay my exam fees before doing the ECFMG registration?

Default what if the Principal or Dean Changes who previously signed the medical transcripts

Hi.. I m the first one to apply for ecfmg regn from our college... i have a few questions
1. i have got my medical transcripts ready but need to get them signed from the Principal. The problem is, the present Principal ( acting principal of our coll ) is expected to be replaced by a new one in a cuple of days. Now, if i get all of my documents signed by the present prinicpal and later the new principal signs on form 327 ( which ecfmg sends for verification of medical education ), wil that be valid ??.. Is it mandatory to get al documents signed from only one PRINCIPAL ?.. or its okay if the signature is of two different people at different times of ECFMG processing ?

2. our med coll principal is not an ECFMG authorised official.. there are four other professors who are authorised. So will his signature be accepted ??

Please help me in this regard... i m planning to give my step 1 by september 2012

Default application for Step 1 for students

Hello!
I`m a student applicating for step 1. I`ve finished the on-line part, and now I am going to fill, sign in the university and send to ECFMG form 183.
But what about forms 344, 345, and 187? Are they actual now? Or form 183 is the only document I need to finish my application?

I have read a lot on this but stil didn`t get a clear answer.

Thaks in advance to everyone who can clarify this for me!
