Residency/Fellowship Programs

Residency/fellowship programs requesting confirmation of the ECFMG certification status of IMGs may submit those requests via CVS ON-LINE or by submitting a completed request form (Form 282A-PD) to ECFMG. All requests must include the 10-digit Residency Program ID Number, which is listed in the AMA’s Graduate Medical Education Directory (“the green book”). Since ECFMG Certification is a requirement for entry into graduate medical education programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), confirmation of ECFMG Certification is provided without charge for residency program directors.

The completed Status Report will include the following information:

* Scores for USMLE Step exams are not included in status reports. These scores are reported in USMLE transcripts.

ECFMG Certification Verification Service
3624 Market Street, 4th Floor

A response will be sent via an express mail service if a prepaid airbill or express service account number is provided with the request form.
