ECFMG - USMLE application problem
 
Hi guys,
I' ve got a problem. I have established my account on ECFMG website in July 2018. I have recieved USMLE-ID and I paid 75$. I started filling out an online application for Step1 but when I came upon choosing eligibility period I decided that I would wait since I did not even start my preparation. A few months have passed... I kind of know where I'm in the preparation process now and I would like to register for the exam, choose my 3-month period and send all the papers. When I logged into my account the only thing I can do is to click on : "Reprint your Certification of Identification Form (Form 186)".

Anyone has ever been in similar situation? Did I do sth wrong with waiting so long (ECFMG states that "you must complete all on-line application items within 14 days of the date you last saved the application. Otherwise, the application will no longer be valid, and you must start another application. " I would like to start a new application but I can not...).

Pls, help ...

Thank you, guys.

Mail those ecfmg guys with your problem. They will respond for sure and help you out. Looks like you haven't paid the step1 application fees yet, so nothing much to worry.. Contact them and they will help you.

When did you start your application, also you need to pay the fees for the new application. Try to contact ECFMG for resolving the issue.
