Help ECFMG reg..doubt...please help...

Hi,

I am new to this forum..I was filling the exam application for step1 when i had the following doubts

I am an IMG from India..I completed my final exams in Feb 2005, completed my internship in March 2006 and got my medical diploma in March 2007 and did my PG from 2007-2010

I have the following doubts:

1. Year I became eligible for medical degree (is it the year I passed my final exams or the year I finished my internship. as there internship is compulsory one to get the medical degree)

2. Graduation year (is it the year I finished my internship or year I received my diploma. The diploma contains two dates. my diploma says that I successfully passed exam conducted in Feb 2005 and I have been awarded the degree and there is this date of issue that mentions march 2007. There is no mention of internship completion year in diploma. So is my graduation year is Feb 2005 or March 2006 or March 2007)

3. Number of years attended...is it 4.5 years without internship or 5.5 years with internship?

4. Does my PG thing have to be mentioned in other institutions attended?

5. Do we have to mention all the clerkships attended? some are saying that anyway they are going to verify the transcript so no need to fill the clerkship column..what should I do?

I am really confused....

kind souls please guide me..Anyone from India who has recently filled the form do let me know how they did it...I would really appreciate this help...

@1. its the year you have completed your internship.since here in India you receive your degree after your internship.
@2.your graduation date is when you have completed your graduation with internship.
and your degree date is when you receive your degree
@3since i am still a student i wrote it 6 years as was not sure of my dates of xams and all.in your case find the total duration you were in your college including your internship.
@4 cant comment
@5 i am not sure about it
