CVS issues two types of reports: confirmation reports and status reports.
A confirmation report verifies whether an IMG is ECFMG certified. These reports are sent to hospitals, HMOs, and other organizations that require confirmation of ECFMG Certification for employment purposes.
Requests from IMGs are not accepted for this purpose. Entities are required to request these reports directly from ECFMG.
A completed confirmation report will include the following information:
A status report verifies an IMG's ECFMG certification status, and also indicates passing performance on exams. These reports are sent to state medical boards/medical licensing authorities and residency/fellowship programs.
IMGs may request to have a status report sent to a state medical board/medical licensing authority only. Residency/fellowship programs must request status reports directly from ECFMG.
A completed status report will include the following information:
*USMLE scores are not included in status reports. State medical boards/medical licensing authorities that require additional USMLE information should contact the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) . If a residency/fellowship programs requires additional USMLE information, you must request a USMLE transcript.
