Default Fast post: Forms: How will ecfmg know that i sent the envelope - as i want to send it with fast post

I have two burning questions:

1. It says that Form 183 must be sent from the office of the medical school.

- I would like to send the Form 183 by fast post, however if medical school had to send it, it will probably be normal cost post (which since I live in Europe will take 2 weeks to arrive- and I don't want to risk missing out on the September eligibility period).

So if i had to sign everything at medical school etc and take it myself to the fast post office, how will ECFMG know if medical school sent it or I myself took the envelope - it's not like medical school has their own post office??

Would I need to take a Medical school chaperone with me?? To certify they sent it??

2. On a different note:

I just want to confirm that for application first: I fill in the IWA Application - Pay - It will generate the form I require right?

I haven't completed my form yet (haven't paid as yet) , but i already have in the Print/Reprint Documents section:


IWA Document Submission Form (Form 187)


I just want to confirm that this is automatic, and not that I did something wrong, as I am a medical student so I should only require 183.

Thanks

Hi there,

As to your first question, let me tell you what my med school does, so maybe you could do the same for you. They put all the documents in an envelope i provided, sealed it and stamped all the corners. Then they gave it to me to mail as I wished. I sent it via courier and had no issues with my forms

For your second question, yes, form 187 will be there automatically. Your form 183 will appear once you register and pay for your exam.

Good luck to us all!!
