CVS for Requesting Organizations

Residency/Fellowship Programs


Residency/fellowship programs requesting confirmation of the ECFMG certification status of IMGs may submit those requests via CVS ON-LINE. 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:

  • Whether an individual is ECFMG certified;
  • Date the certificate was issued;
  • Date(s) through which the certificate remains valid for the purpose of entry into graduate medical education;
  • Passing performance* on examination(s) for ECFMG Certification;
  • Date of most recently passed English test;
  • Date of most recently passed CSA;
  • Name of medical school, country, and degree year; and
  • Status of the verification of the physician’s medical education credentials.

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