Hello,

This is regarding the confusion over the sequence of my name. My
name exactly as it appears on my medial school diploma is PULAVARTHI
GOUTHAM PHANI where "PULAVARTHI" is my SURNAME / FAMILY NAME [Also
called Last name] and "GOUTHAM" "PHANI" my first and last names respectively. But in India due to the practice of mentioning surname before the given name, it appears first before the given name on my diploma.

On my ECFMG records, my name is as GOUTHAM PHANI PULAVARTHI,
i.e GOUTHAM(first name) PHANI (middle name) PULAVARTHI (family / last
name/SURNAME)
. On my passport, PULAVARTHI is mentioned specifically as My
SURNAME/LASTNAME/FAMILY NAME and the rest of my name as GOUTHAM PHANI.

When I am going to apply for verification of credentials, in the ECFMG ® Medical Education Credentials Submission FORM 344,
should i mark the checklist item that
My name as it appears on my final medical diploma matches exactly my name as it appears in my ECFMG record
OR should i check the option which states
My name as it appears on my final medical diploma does not match exactly my name as it appears in my ECFMG record. I have attached the following documentation such as a passport copy to verify that the name on my medical diploma is/was my
name. The documentation shows my name exactly as it appears on my medical diploma.

Is this going to be a problem now and in the future? kindly let me know

Kindly clarify my doubt clearly..

thankS IN advance
