Stop Verify your information

Who sent you the email? which email it was, did it end in ECFMG.org domain!

Usually such important information are made public in the USMLE and ECFMG website.

I suggest you call the ECFMG to verify such critical information.

So What to Do?
Generally ECFMG/USMLE/NBME will announce that in their official website. Kindly don't spread these rumors. If you get any email then call ecfmg and confirm it. I think it cant be true. Thanks

Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) Test Center in Chicago Temporarily Closed

(posted July 28, 2011; updated July 28, 2011)
UPDATE: All Step 2 CS examinations scheduled at the Chicago test center through August 12 have been cancelled.
The Clinical Skills Evaluation Collaboration (CSEC) test center in Chicago sustained significant damage during a recent rainstorm and is currently closed. All Step 2 CS examinations scheduled at the Chicago test center through August 12 have been cancelled.

Initially they have announced the date July 25-Aug 5th but now they have updated the info and fresh dates are announced JULY 25-AUG 12..You will get email if your exam was scheduled through Aug 12th 2011.

May be damage was significant and they are taking more time. Dont worry ecfmg will accommodate you. Why dont you FAX ecfmg or call ecfmg on this issue. Your problem can only be solved by ECFMG. Fax them with your name,USMLE ID,phone number and sign it and fax to 215-386-9196

Once you fax you will get reply on same day. If you want you can call after 2 hours of faxing to ecfmg. DO NOT worry ecfmg will help you and they will not charge you reschedule fee if any. You can change cs center. If you want to give cs exam only at chicago then call ecfmg immediately followed by fax. Once send me your email ID. gl

Regards
