yes they will be sending certain documents to med school for verification including your diploma. But I dont know wether they will send form 186 for verification or not?

But according to this post by one of the admins of this forum, u can get your scheduling permit by sending your form 186. Medical education credentials verification and scheduling permit

A lot of my seniors got their permits after submitting form 186.But I think ECFMG has made some changes in last few months...I still didnt get my permit.

Submit everything in time to avoid delay...I M waiting for my permit since 2 months.

Ecfmg received my form 186 and processed it in a week but at the same time my othr docs were sent to my med school for verification.... So my oasis acc shows 186 accepted and waiting for verification from med school for other forms.... Since i had theb186 verified by the dean and sent from his office they dint verify it again

I called ecfmg a week ago, they told me that you only need form 186 to get scheduling permit. Form 327 is not needed. So mindy, i suggest you call them and find out what is holding up your scheduling permit

I have some really long and sad experience with my 186-form.

I sent my 186 form in June, 2012 to my Siberian State Medical University. They lost it. When I sent another one - the did't fill it out correct.
As a result - It was 5 times as I sent them and got letter from ECFMG that my Medical School did't fill it in correct way. Then my medical diploma transcript was approved and then I sent 186 form to ECFMG just with notary public seal. So in 2 weeks I got my permit - it was February, 2013. Really sad and funny...
I thought it will never be done. Every time one little detail was not correct. I was really mad.
But when my transcript was approved I called to ECFMG and the told me that with russian medical schools it happens a lot And I can send them 186 form without stamp from medical school.
