Communication Change in Dean. IMG from India. How to notify ECFMG?

Hey folks!

I'm an IMG from India. My college Dean has changed a month back and I'm concerned that my documents might be rejected by the ECFMG if it's signed by the new Dean!

Do you have any idea on how to ask my college to update the status of the new Dean to ECFMG? Is there any particular form/letter format to use?

Thanks.

Yes. My issue was resolved.

You got to ask your college office to send a letter directly to the ECFMG, notifying them about the change in Dean and the date from which the new Dean has took over along with 3 specimen signatures of the new Dean along with the college seal in college letterhead.

In my case, the status of the new Dean was updated within 6 days of the receipt of the letter by the ECFMG. I was told this may vary and might take a maximum of 2 weeks in some cases.

Hope it helps.

All the best.

To what address this letter should be sent?
Also, my medical school has to send my transcript to ECFMG. Can transcript and the letter indicating change in official be sent in same envelope?

1) Send the letter to the usual ECFMG address given on the contact page of the ECFMG website.

2) I guess sending both documents together won't be a problem. But just to be sure, why not call the ECFMG and get it cleared for sure?
