Certificate ECFMG Verification ?

Hi Forum guys,

I got a question - it has been around 1.5 month that my college has sent the form 327 A back to ECFMG .. however, it still says on logging into OASIS that the " medical credentials received and verification is pending "

My Question is - on an average how much time do ECFMG take in accepting the 327 A form sent from the medical college and updating it on OASIS ..

Plus, can we apply for an steps and schedule any Step while this process is going on or do i hav to wait for this process to get over n only then can i schedule the exam

DOes anyone has any similar experiences ??

Thnx

I finished my medical education credentials verification and there was nothing called Form 327-A!
What is this?
Did you send Form 186?

do u hav a track when did it reach ecfmg??? it takes around 6 to 8 weeks for verification to be checked and accepted after received..if all ur exams r cleared then certificate is issued in 1 or 2 weeks...
in the mean time u can def apply for steps....form 327 A is for ur ecfmg certificate....
u just have to pay ur fees for steps and wait for ur scheduling permit so tht u can take a date...

Default Thnx guys

thnx guys for the response

@ laithbv - Form 327 A is the form SENT BY ECFMG TO ur med-school for verification of the credentials, after ECFMG receives them in the first place. And your med-school has to reply back to ECFMG for the credentials verification is complete, failing which ECFMG verification of the credentials is NOT Complete.

@prachu85_v - thnx a lot buddy . my form must hav reached there since my college told me tht they sent it in the month of June, since it has been around 4-6 weeks already, and no status update on OASIS, so i'm getting a bit anxious . So u mean to say tht since 327 A is for the certificate, it means tht once i'm thru with all the steps and the credential verification, will I be issued the ECFMG CERTIFICATE soon - I'm asking this since I've seen a lot of ppl sayin on forums tht it takes a long time to get the ECFMG CERTIFICATE as well, tht sometimes even delays them to apply for Match the same yr. .. Advise plz ?? Also does the ECFMG send us a mail or e-mail to notify the completion of verification or do they only update it in our OASIS account ?

It has been frequently repeated in the past the medical education credentials taking more than three months in certain instances.
I wouldn't worry to much about it. Just give it another month then you can call them.

With regard to your ECFMG certificate:
This will be automatically produced immediately when you pass Step 1, Step 2 CK and CS and get your credentials verified. Whichever of these four events happen last it will be immediately followed by an automatic ECFMG certification status.
When you apply for the match. You don't need the physical hard copy of the ECFMG certificate. The ECFMG will electronically transmit your updated status (within few hours of changes) to ERAS. So don't worry about this also.

Yes, congratulations. Your case is over.
You'll get your ECFMG certificate once you pass the CS

There's no set standard and the processing times highly varies from applicant to another and from certain times of the year to another.
I'd say an average of 4 weeks for IMGs with no EMSWP access.
