iam a unlucky img
the ecfmg says they have sent my credentials for verification
but my college says it has not received anything from ecfmg
can i call ecfmg and ask them if they have sent to correct address
how can i proceed
if anyone had similar problems,please advice me on this
thanks in advance



In response to your concern, I would suggest that you contact your medical college, especially the Dean or Vice Dean to follow on the tracking of your file. Please do not give up. Keep calling both your med college and the ECFMG until the matter is resolved. I must tell you that I've gone through a similar experience. I believe you'll get a final good answer from ECFMG. I wish you good luck. Please remember that one should never give up hope.



Do not be upset. I had the same experience before. ecfmg did not get response from my previous medical school. After 6 months ECFMG re-sent the mail and finally got verification. It is just a problem of time. Do not worry. Good luck!


Find the exact name of someone at the college for ECFMG to send the information to. Also, if someone in your family is near your school, have them repeatedly go to check out if the information is completed and sent back.

Nothing like having someone walk into my office, to have me complete that paperwork quickly (just to get them to leave me alone!!) :oops:


It is not quick... I found out from ECFMG exactly who they address the letter to for my Med School, then you can find out from the Med School who woud receive a letter addresses inths way. Eami lthat person and continue weekly until they deal with it.


Which address does the ECFMG use to send the verification ??
is it the address listed on IMED website ?
or is it the return address on the envelope / letterhard that is on the diploma ?

can i tell the ECFMG where to send the address or add a note to the credentials envelope saying the correct return adress ?


I am facing the same problem, ECFMG has sent verification second time. I contacted my med school and they haven't received it yet. So I called ECFMG and they said they can only sent the verification letter to the address provided in the IMED website.I asked them if they can change the address and send it straight to my med school..they said they r not thing they can do..I can fax them a request to send the verification letter again ( which is on IMED website) and open FEDEX/DHL account and pay for that...I will start the procedure again after 6th...In my country dean of med school is like a maze...or blackhole...nobody knows where it I would suggest call ECFMG . Hope that helps.


Now I just saw it's an old post.....shocked
