India ECFMG time frame for Indian Medical Students

HI!

I have done my grad in Medicine from India and currently in UK and wish to write USMLE. Could any one tell me about the time scales involved in the ECFMG verification from an Indian Medical school so that I can time my application and visit to my school in India to make sure they send off the verified forms on time?

Thanks in advance!

If your college is not participating in EMSWP then it takes about 2-3 months

Thanks Kalpana! But I don't have any idea whether my Medical college participates in the EMSWP

Is there any database for checking it up or do I call them up to ask?

You can call them and ask but my guess is that they are not. Most Indian schools did not yet participate in EMSWP yet

Well thats a shame that Indian Med schools have not gone online yet with ECFMG. I'm doing a PhD in Cardiovascular Medicine and have to time my trip to India after my application such that the paperwork has reached my med school and then pester them to send it off without delay. So many little things that may go wrong. So I guess I should give it 6-8 weeks for the forms to reach my school?
