Certificate verification of diploma


I am a graduate and only recently got my diploma. So I had a valid form 186 and have cleared step 1 and gotten a permit for CK.

I got a mail (I got a letter by post ) from ECFMG saying that I need to send them one copy of my medical diploma and a translation for them to get it verified.

Now I just sent that one copy about 2 weeks ago but haven't heard from them, whether they received it and also I applied for CS and still haven't gotten the permit.

It's been almost 3 weeks.

What should I do?

Do they tell us when they will contact our medical school

also strangely enough they asked for just one copy ..why so?? plz help...

Arrow Give them a call

Your situation does not seem to be right, because they usually ask for two photocopies of the Diploma as outlined here

The ECFMG sometimes take up to 6 weeks to take action but I suggest you give them a call and double check what's going on.
