Hello,

The ECFMG requires the following;

Final Medical School Transcript
Final Medical School Diploma

They do not need Internship Certificate

Yes. It's true, certain states such as California and Texas might ask you for internship certificate but that's after you finish your residency and start looking for practice jobs.

thanks for your prompt reply..
the issue with me is that my internship completion certificate is lost, so do you think that there is any need for me to request my university to issue another certificate (my college is making this complicated and asked me to come there in person to request it- booking an international ticket just to collect this seems ridiculous) . As you mentioned , it is not required by ECFMG but do you need it when you apply for state boards? Also in the state board application when they ask postgraduate training (my internship was done prior to receiving my final diploma) , does that include our medical school internship or is it just our residency? thx again
