Question How to release ECFMG certification to programs

I have a last minute question regarding ECFMG certification. In the program tab on ERAS, there is a link "Assigments report" on the right hand-side. It lists all the supporting documents (MSPE, Transcript, USMLE transcript, Photo, PS, LOR) but ECFMG certification is not listed there. Does anyone notice the same issue? Do we have to take any action to "release" the ECFMG certification? I see on OASIS, there is a link to request permanent sticker for ECFMG certification. Has anyone requested it before?

  • USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number
  • Applicant name
  • Birth date
  • ECFMG-certified: (Yes or No)
  • Certificate issue date
  • Exams passed for ECFMG Certification
