Calendar Timeline for USMLE Step 3

Hi all.
I am an IMG and I finished step 1, CK and CS and I am waiting for CK results and verification of my credentials. According to my school officials and their experience with other graduates I will complete all the requirements for ECFMG certification in late Aug, possibly after Aug the 20th. I am planning to apply to the match this season.

- Will I be able to apply to step 3 and take it sometime in Nov?
- I heard that there is a deadline ( Sept the 2nd ) that you have to apply to step 3 before .. is this true?

If you plan to take Step 3 in 2011, you must register for Step 3 before September 2nd, 2011, and also mail your certificate of identity form to them before then.

I received email stating that Sept 9th is deadlibe for all materials for applying to Step 3. This is the deadline if you want to take it this year, ie by december.

As soon as you find out you pass, apply. It doesnt matter if you physically have your ECFMG certificate or not, because as soon as you pass, online you will be considered certified.

Hope this helps.

Isn't credentials verification a requirement for issuance of ECFMG certification? If yes, for those of us whose credentials aren't verified yet, is it ok if we apply now?

I also passed my last step today - the CS - but my credentials aren't verified nor have I received my ECFMG certificate of course.

You must have your credentials verified. Absolutely correct. Mine were verified as soon as I graduated, so when I passed step 2, I got certified immediately.

If you are waiting on verification, I would expect ECFMG certification within 2 weeks or so AFTER they verify your degree.
