Hi smita,

you go to iwa2.ecfmg.org

Click on:

If you have never been issued a USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number and want to request one, click here.

You will fill basic information about yourself and you will obtain the ID number. They will send you an email, I'm not sure, but I think it takes a few days.

Then, using your number and password, you will log into iwa to apply for ECFMG certifictaion. You can read the instructions here: https://iwa2.ecfmg.org/appforcert/on...tructions.aspx

At the end you will have to pay a fee I guess it's like 65 USD. After completing the application you will be allowed to submit application for a test.

As for difference between iwa and oasis:

In iwa you can: submit applications, apply for extension, request to withhold your results from your med school and so on.
In oasis you can check for status of your certification process - that means - status of application, test results and things like that.

Hope this helps.
