The verification of my credentials from my medical school was received by ECFMG about two months ago, but they informed me now that they have received it :(.
Could anybody tell me do we receive the status of verification of our credentials from ECFMG? I mean when ECFMG completes the processing of our verified credentials, do they subsequently inform the applicants that either their documents are OK or there is any problem, if one persists :confused:?

Go to OASIS

You'll receive an email notification and a mail notification (if you have a US address) that your verification of credentials forms have been received from your medical school.

After that there's two possibilities:

  1. Your papers has got some problems. In this case they will not tell you. They'll just get back to your medical school and tell them what's the problem.
  2. Your papers has been accepted. In this case they may or may not tell you. But anyway you'll notice that in your OASIS.
Here are the steps in OASIS:
Go to OASIS then login with username and password then click on "Medical Education Credentials and Standard ECFMG Certificate" link found on the left side column.

When process is complete.
You'll find this phrase
"Medical education credentials received and verified."

This means one of two things:

  1. They received it and they did not process it yet.
  2. They received it and they found a problem with it. (As I told you before, they will not tell you if there's a problem they'll get back to your medical school).
The only to tell between these two possibilities is by contacting them by telephone.

Hey What Does This Mean

I eventually had a call to ECFMG 2 days ago and they told me that my credentials were not process and they are going to be processed in next few days. Now when I see my account through OASIS there is written that Medical education Credentials received and verified . However I have not received an email from them, what does that mean? Are my credentials O.K or God forbid there is a problem?

Congratulations. This means that you are done with the verification process :happy:
The ECFMG email server is usually behind their actual website server sometimes by up to two days (specially on weekends). Which means that changes you see in OASIS may not be emailed to you until a couple of days later.
It might sometimes never be emailed to you see this thread for example

Waiting for Certificate..how much time it takes?

I cleared my step 1 and step 2 sometime back, however medical credentials were pending due to known reasons. Today when I checked status, it was 'Medical education credentials received and verified'. Please suggest how long will it take for me to get certificate? Does it take days/ weeks/ months? :eek:

the ECFMG received the verification from my med school on may 5, and verification was completed by July 15. so it took about 3 months. generally it takes about 6-8weeks, but in my case there was some sort of delay i guess.
anyway i think if they have received verification from your med school then it is only matter of time before processing is complete.......
wish everything work out well for you ;)

HI everyone.
This trend is really helpful for me as I am going through this painstaking verification process. I am already done with all the exames waiting for the verifiation .
My college have send the required documets some 10 days ago to ECFMG. Now my question is , Is it only the paper verification required or there is some online verification to be done from my college too? If so i have to inform my college about the online verification too otherwise they won't check it .
My status on oasis- verification received and pending.
thanks.

If your school does not participate in EMSWP then it's only paper verification.

Hi Steptaker,

My School participates in EMSWP so does that mean I have electronic verification of my credentials? I will have to inform my college about it if this is the case!

Thanks
