Your ECFMG Record
The contact information in your ECFMG record consists of your e-mail address, your address of residence, your telephone number, and your fax number (if applicable). ECFMG will send information on the status of your applications by e-mail. You will also need an e-mail address to use ECFMG’s on-line services. Be sure to include a full and complete address for your residence. ECFMG will use your address of residence as your mailing address. Certain ECFMG correspondence, including your Standard ECFMG Certificate, requires a full mailing address.
You should ensure that the contact information in your ECFMG record is current. You can check and update your contact information on-line using OASIS or the MyECFMG mobile app. You cannot submit changes to your contact information to ECFMG by e-mail. ECFMG will not process changes to contact information received from any person other than the applicant.
Changing your e-mail address using OASIS or MyECFMG does not update your e-mail address in your e-newsletter subscription(s). If you are subscribed to one or more of ECFMG’s e-mail newsletters, such as The ECFMG® Reporter or ECHO News, and your e-mail address changes, you must update your e-mail address for each e-newsletter. To update your e-mail address in your e-newsletter subscription(s), visit the E-Newsletters page in the Resources section of the ECFMG website, click on the newsletter(s) you receive, unsubscribe your old e-mail address, and subscribe your new e-mail address.
To protect the privacy of applicants, ECFMG will e-mail applicant-specific information only to the e-mail address in the applicant’s ECFMG record. If your e-mail inquiry requires a specific response, you must send your inquiry from the e-mail address in your ECFMG record.
All correspondence with ECFMG, including e-mails, will become a part of your permanent ECFMG record.
