Registration No Dates on Diploma!

In my medical papers, the month of joining, the month of graduation and the month the diploma was awarded are not clearly mentioned. So can I guess to the approximate date and fill it out??

Your graduation Diploma must mention the date of issue. I've never seen a graduation Diploma without mentioning the date of issue. Contact your medical school about that.

As for the joining and finishing dates, you can usually find that in your final medical school transcript, if you still cannot find it then, it's probably OK just to guess the approximate dates.

All you need to send are copies of your Diploma.

Your college should send to the ECFMG, what's called "Final Medical School Transcript", this transcript should list all your marks and degrees in all the years of college, including the internship year, if the internship year is part of the curriculum.

If the internship is not part of the curriculum, then you don't need to mention as part of your educational curriculum, just mention it as clerkship and you don't need to send documentation about it.
