Egypt Alexandria University Intern applying for ECFMG

I am an internship doctor (tabib emtiaz) in Alexandria university, first I don't know if my university is in the EMSWP system or not, plus I don't know what are the documentation needed by the ECFMG in my case...I mean do I need my graduation certificate, my transcript, & a certificate of the clinical rounds I attended or just the 186 form??

Thanks in advance for the help

Answers:

- You can ask your University if they participate in EMSWP.
- You don't need certificate of clerkships (internships) if they are mentioned in your transcript
- You need Diploma, Transcript, and Form 186, and other forms that you'll get when you apply in the ECFMG website, for further details read here ECFMG Registration Steps

Default So you are still a student

The ECFMG considers any student who does not have Diploma or Transcript yet as an undergrad.

So you are considered as still medical student, not medical graduate.

In that case when your register in the ECFMG website you tell them that you are still student and they will give you Form 183-E and you don't need to fill Form 186.

Just want to clarify something,especially, for Egyptians.
Some Egyptian universities don't give the graduate his diploma & give it during internship year.
But when those students receive their diplomas, the date of graduation in the Diploma is the date when the graduate finished his education (6th year) not the date the diploma issued. So you would be considered graduate during imtiaz year.

We have seen many querries from Egyptian students about this dilemma; student vs. graduate.

If the date of graduation is when you finished your 6 year then you are graduate & no longer student during internship (imtiaz) year, regardless the date of issue of the diploma

Thank you so much...but the problem is even if I am considered a graduate in internship year I still don't get my diploma till I finish it so what should I do if I want to apply for step 1 while I am still in internship (emtiaz)?

Thank you for clarifying that good_boy_1234. My friend (also Egyptian) applied as a graduate during his internship, and went through the same problem and had to send his papers AGAIN this time as student, cuz ECFMG told him they consider him as a student until he finishes his internship. I believe there are many people with different opinions working on ECFMG cuz from what i see, people get different responses each time.
