Correct Answer Sending medical school DIPLOMA to programs

A lot of programs require that if you have graduated from medical school, that you include a copy of your medical school diploma. I talked to ERAS and ECFMG and they said that we have to send that ourselves as you cannot upload it with your application.

Does anyone have any information on this? I would like to send it to programs. Is it okay if I send it to all the programs in an email? or will that not look good?

I think it would make sense if you wait for those programs to contact you first to send it to them as they will require it as part of the application if they were going to review your application.
