ECFMG Status Reports contain the following information:
  • USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number
  • Applicant name
  • Birth date
  • ECFMG-certified: (Yes or No)
  • Certificate issue date
  • Exams passed for ECFMG Certification
  • CSA valid through date, if applicable
  • Medical school of graduation
  • Degree year
  • Medical Education Credential Status (complete or incomplete)
  • Explanatory notes (if applicable)
Your ECFMG Status Report will be transmitted automatically to the ERAS PostOffice. You do not need to request this, and the cost is included in your ERAS Token fee.

Ref: http://www.ecfmg.org/eras/applicants...ts-status.html

Unlike the USMLE Transcript, the ECFMG Status report just report the day and month you passed (no score is mentioned). The status report automatically updated every 2 weeks and automatically sent to ERAS and you don't have to do anything about it.

Question Is this mandatory for aspirants?

Is this certification mandatory for aspirants of USMLE? I am a MBBS graduate from India. I also finished my mandatory 12 month internship and I am MCI registered. I will be moving to US along with my spouse. Should I get this certification done before I start preparing for Step 1? Do I need any kind of NOC from my college before I leave to US and start preparing and appearing for Step 1? I would greatly appreciate your response. Thanks in advance.
