You first need to create an account on www.ecfmg.org , you will receive a USMLE ID in few days later in your email. Later you have to apply for a step exam during which you will fill all your detail and about your core clerkships in your medical school . You will then have to print the certification of identification form (form 186) and get it filled and attested by your med school and your med school is supposed to mail it to ECFMG. They will receive and confirm it in 4 weeks after that you will be issued your scheduling permit and you can take a date for the exam . Keep in mind that if you are Post Grad then you also have to process copy of your degree and sent to ecfmg this way

Then you will have to process your degree before you sit in exam

Also remember that you have to submit form 344 and 345 along with your photo and 2 copies of graduation certifcate/diploma yourself. Then they will send your credentials to your college for verification

I am just beginning my application process and have an ecfmg number.
When I log into IWA, I filled out the step2 ck form FIRST including details on core clerkships etc, then Im suppose to pay $820 for the exam FIRST??
I don't understand. Should I complete the form and pay 820$ FIRST?
this is even before I have applied for ecfmg verification.
how do I get my credentials verified from ecfmg FIRST (before paying for step2) ?????

Thanks for the help.
