Default Form 186 Confusion :scared:

Hi All,

I am in US (away from my Medical School Country) and I am applying for step one. So far completed online part and I got 2 options of form 186 with and without notary.
My college status is EMSWP verified, however form is saying it is not verified (my credentials are not primarily verified), which form I have to select, with Notary or without Notary.

It will be appreciated if you reply as soon as possible, as I already submitted online part.

Thanks for your help and support in advance!

Regards,
- Dr.Shilpa

Hi
You can select with or without notary...but as far as I know everyone (even me) selects without the notary form and just fill it up and courier back to your country and have it signed by authorized official.
Credentials verification is next step. It means once you have send your 186(and 2other forms) ecfmg will ask your school through post to send your medical transcript.

How will I know if my credentials have been verified already? ECMG will contact my school directly to verify my credentials? Help Please

Roopa,

Appreciate your quick reply!

after submission I got 2 forms that I have to send 1] From 186 and 2] Form 345, could you please tell me only these 2 forms you are talking about, or is there any other form that I have to fill and send.

Thanks for your help and support for the same!

Regards,
-Dr.Shilpa
