Default CSA exam

Can somebody please explain me the CSA exam?
I'm expecting my ECFMG certificate, so I was going through some residency programs and saw that they require CSA???????

It says something like this:
"International Medical Graduates must possess U.S. citizenship or have permanent residency and a valid ECFMG certificate including the CSA examination."
Maybe this means that CSA is not a requirement, but that people who took it instead of CS are also eligible to apply?????
