Timing for Medical Education Credential Requirements check

Postby KMH_Heidelberg » Fri Apr 13, 2012 2:05 pm

I was wondering how long the Medical Education Credential Requirements check takes after graduation.

Say I graduate in early May 2013 and hold my German diploma in my hands by 15 May, will that be enough time for ECFMG to verify everything before programs start on 1 July?!

Time required for credentials verifications vary greatly by school. ECFMG started electronic verification pilot. If your school is on the pilot, it should take no time. Otherwise, you can ask your school how long will this take once they receive a request from ECFMG. ECFMG sends out a sealed request and will be waiting for your school to send filled info back in a provided envelope. This turn around takes most of the time.
