Certificate ECFMG Certficate Requirement

What are the ECFMG requirements to issue you a certification.
Is it passed step 1, step 2 CK and CS and Step 3?
Or Only passed step 1 and Step 2 CK are enough to issue a certificate while waiting for CS later in the year?

My point is directing at the date of Sep when application for NRMP start open. where many programs require your to have ECFMG certification beforehand.

Thanks

1. You need to pass Step1, Step 2ck, and Step 2cs

2. You need to have your medical school credentials verified by ECFMG

Thanks for your reply. However what you think of chances for any program to call you for an interview after uploading ecfmg certificate later in the year like in Nov, Dec or before Feb compare to having everything submitted in Sep.?

Thanks once again

Requirement regarding ECFMG certificate is different from program to program. If you are not certified prior to application season , i suggest you do your research and look which programs have ECFMG certification as a requirement.

Some programs say that they want it at the time of application, others say that they require it at the time of interview.
