2014.

If you want to match for 2013, you would need to be ECFMG certified by september 2012, because match for that year happens in March.

thanks patelmd..ur answers are always great
now i'm actually worried...they say every year, match becomes more competitive since the average scores needed for each specialty increase every year...i think by the time 2014 comes I won't be able to match in IM/peds that's why i was hopeful when I thought I was going for the 2013 match....any advices u'd give?

Well best thing you can do other than being worried is make your application more competitive, by getting really high scores on steps, US LORS and some Observerships!

Other than that, you can pray!
