Post Diploma photocopy confusion

Hi guys,

- Is it a must that the copy of the 'diploma' be a certified one ?
- If yes , stamped by the med school or will a public notary be okay ?
I don't live in the country as my med school.

My diploma is in English and needs no translation.

Been reading the posts on here and kinda got this idea that a translated diploma be sent in the form of a 'certified copy' plus the photocopies of the original diploma.
But I'm not sure about the normal English language diploma.

And i guess its ok if its a black and white copy and on an A4 size paper.

Pls verify,
thanks ..

Send 2 ATTESTED photocopies of medical diploma.I got it attested from notary.IF ur Diploma is in English then u dont need any translated diploma.


ECFMG has clearly mentioned the size of medical diploma photocopy-(216 mm x 279 mm or 8 in x 11 in).So A4 size doesnt work.I got it on A3 size paper and manually cut the margins according to size expected by ECFMG.



I did this 1 month ago and my form was accepted.Good Luck!!

No..they dont expect u to send the transcript.Your med school will send them the transcript when ECFMG asks for it.

Sometimes,if your med school doesn't send them the transcript then they may ask you to send it.

Some people send it to be extra safe though its not necessary to send it.Check FORM 344 and u'l find they dont expect it.I didnt send the transcript.My form was accpeted
