Embarrassed Name Difference

Hi there,

Can anyone help me with this, i have my full name in my passport & other IDs & i have registered in ECFMG with that name, but my name in my medical diploma & other documents has only my first & middle name & not the last name.

Now I'm wondering in addition to a letter from college that says that both names belong to the same person, what else do i have to do???

Will that be a big problem? did anyone else also had this issue? what did u do to correct it?

Plz help

Arrow Nothing more to do

No there isn't more to do than an official letter from the dean office and this will solve your problem 100%.

You are not the first one with this issue see here
