Hello frns, kindly help me out in application, I have some doubts 1.what to write about no. Of clerical ships you have attempted I think it's item no. 22. Is that what we have attended clinical postings from 2nd yr to final year. Hw many we should write as I'm an old graduate from India I don't remember all the postings. Other doubt is my name on the degree certificate is different from my pass port ( my sur name is expanded in the passport). kindly any one clear my doubts I'm really tensed I'm in the middle of application. Thank u.

I got a letter from my med school dean verifying my name.Go to ur med school with all the required documents - degree,marksheets,photo id,ECFMG record name(take a print out from ur ECFMG account).Explain to your med school staff everything.I did the same 2-3 weeks ago.Don't worry and dont stress urself out.I went through the same thing and I know how it feels.Good Luck on ur step1!!

If you didn't go outside ur college/hosp for training...then u didn't do any clerkship.

Indian med schools usually don't send their students to other institutes...we don't do clerkships.It's not the same as clinical rotations that start frm 2nd yr OR internship.Hope its clear now.


Do u have other documents to verify ur name...
  • Passport (including the pages with your photograph and the expiration date)
  • Birth certificate
  • Marriage certificate
  • Official court order
  • U.S. Resident Alien Card
  • U.S. Naturalization Certificate


If nothing else works,call ECFMG.They are very helpful....

Your college must be listed in the IMED list.You can't find out if your college participates in EMSWP since there's no such list available.


When I was filling up my form and it was almost 80-90%complete...the page displayed that my college participates in EMSWP.Was so relievedThat's the only way to know.


You can call ur college office and ask them directly.Or talk to ur frnz frm college...wasn't an option for me.I did everythg on my own.You can do it too.It can be scary at times i know.You can always get help here on this forum.
