Default Ecfmg certification time

Hi guys, so it has already been 2 weeks since my CK results are in (completed requirments for ecfmg certification). But I still don't see anything on oasis. How long does it take to receive the certificate? Should I call them about it?
Thanks in advance..

My guess is ECFMG is currently verifying your credentials which takes an average of 8 weeks. It would be best to call them and verify where they are in that process.

Even if your credentials have been verified, it can take a long time for the paperwork to be processed. Since we are so close to application time, I can only assume there are lots of people trying to get their certification at this time.

Hi Oilivia

I have a question. Does home LoR mean a letter from someone in your home medical school faculty? or does it mean a letter from any physician in your home country?

When people say "home" LoR it generally means any LoR from anyone in your home country.
