Default Step 2 CK delay in score report

Hey guys!

I just saw in the USMLE website that "because of necessary modifications to the test item pool, there will be a delay in reporting for some examinees who test between the week of July 13th through late August.". So, they say that score report will come at September 16th for most of people that take the exam in this period.

I already scheduled my CK for July 24th and I really don't want to antecipate it. Do you think that the score will just come in September 16th or is there a chance that it will come earlier?

I wanted to apply as "ECFMG certified"

hey,

ugh i saw the news too. it is such bullshit. why didnt they tell us before? i have mine scheduled for july 28. and did so, because i estimated it coming out 4 weeks enough to apply for cetification... anyways. highly doubtful they will come out before the 16. if they mean the 16, they mean the 16. i guess we can hope for the best though.

No need to worry guys. The very day your ck results comes in, you will be ecfmg certified. So certification on 16th September is great news. not late for application at all. Cheers

Yes! You have mistaken.
It takes from 2 days to 2weeks to get your certificate wen let's say your score is released on 16th sept. infact a day or two after released of your score, you will receive email from ecfmg congratulating you and telling you that your certificate is ready and would be posted to the address in your ecfmg profile. Those in USA receive it within 3 days then those outside will get it depending on how far you are and your local response to postals.
So cheers guys.

Hi nsesereso

do you know when eras will update CK score and certificate in the system ? Sept 16 or 17 ?

i know the certificate paper is useless. The key thing is when everything will be transferred from ECFMG to ERAS ?

Thanks

Well said! Am not sure but am told document take maximum of 2 weeks to go through in ERAS. am not sure of the certificate duration through ERAS. Obviously score don't take 2 weeks either so we have to find that out. But programs know that once u hv pased 1,ck and cs you are ecfmg certified.

Your certificate becomes important mostly during interview time when some programs want to see it with you as part of their requirement for the IV sessions.

Hi. The score is delayed this year as well. It will be released on 14th September if ck is taken on July 10th or later. Can you tell me how long did it take to get the certificate? And if the score is out on September 14th, around what time would ECFMG and ERAS website should show me as being ecfmg certified?

Hi. You can still try for this year's match. I am in the same situation as you are. If your credentials are already verified, if you get the ck result on 14th September you will be ECFMG certified within 10 days and if you have a US address you will recieve the certificate quickly as well. Few people I know who were certified 4-6 days after they got their ck result. You just have to decide if you want to apply on 15th September without certification or apply 7-10 days later after you are certified.

I did completely understand what you mean by next years match. You mean you want to apply next September? Or this September for 2017 match? Anyways for applying this September, if you want to be really safe you have to give the ck before July 8th 2016. But as I have said in the above post, even if you give it after July 9th, the reporting date is given as September 14th 2016(upto end of 1st or 2nd week of August, I can't say the date for sure as USMLE announcement just says late August. But you cannot give ck on September 1st and expect result to be out on 14th September. So the last date to get the result on 14th September might be around 10th to 12th of August). You can still apply then, its just that will take 5-10 days for you to be ECFMG certified. Try to be done with credentials verification soon, so that you will be quickly certified when u get the ck result.

If your medical school participates in ECFMG web portal for credentials verification it takes around 1.5 to 2 months once your send your diploma to ECFMG. It can take much longer if your school does not participate in the web portal as the process has to be done by postal mail.

No. Look at the medical education credentials section in OASIS. If it says "Medical education credentials complete and verified" you are done with credentials verification.
