Prolonged ECFMG Processing time but I already have position
I got accepted into a position into a psychiatry residency program without being ECFMG certified yet. The processing time took longer then expected( ECFMG took very long to send out the verfication letters, medical school dean was on vacation and medical school diploma verification got signed by wrong person). The program changed my starting date to a month later but Im afraid that all the documents still wont be done by then. ECFMG also needs to process the J1 Visa application.
Im sitting on packed bags and already signed a lease for an apartment. What might happen? Will they give my position to someone else? I indirectly asked them but they only say things like " we hope you will come soon".
I would be endless thankful for any advice/ ideas!
