Question ECFMG Certificate in ERAS

hi all

1. please how do I send my ecfmg certificate to interested programs. theres no avenue in eras for sending.

2. some programs require CV/resume, theres no place for uploading this in eras.

3. some programs have a 3 year cut-off, what do with 4 year post graduation.

1. There is no need to send it. The programs automatically verify it if you actually have it. You just need to state the date of issue in ERAS.

2. You cannot upload a CV to ERAS. After completing the sections there with your details, a nice CV will be automatically generated which you can preview.

3. In most cases, a difference of one year is not a big deal, but some programs have rigid criteria. If unsure, you may contact the programs about that.

no when they say 3 years, they mean 3 years. Save your money.

CV is created on your behalf
