Default Need your opinion please

My medical school sent the verification of credentials documents "Form 327-A ... etc" to ECFMG 2 weeks ago. Now on OASIS, it says "Medical education credentials complete and verified". What does that mean?? Does it mean I am ECFMG certified now??

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks

It means you are done with credentials verification. If you are done with step 1 and 2, you will be sent an email saying you have met the requirements for ECFMG certification and your certificate will be sent to the address in 5-10 business days after processing your record. (if gou have a US address on file in OASIS that is. If you have an international address in OASIS, it can take 2-3 weeks to get the certificate after its issued)

Thanx saxo. I am done with all the steps and submitting my application tomorrow. Does that mean I won't have a problem now with programs requiring ECFMG certification at the time of application??

You will. After credentials verification, it takes 5-10 days for the certificate to be issued (after ECFMG has processed to see if you have met the requirements). For everyone I know, this was 2-4 days though. Once you get an email from ECFMG that the certificate was issued and shipped (or the section on ECFMG certificate in OASIS is updated), you are officially ECFMG certified. You don't need the actual certificate to apply (unlike previous years)
