The contact information in your ECFMG record consists of your e-mail and mailing addresses, 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 also include a complete 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. You can also update your contact information by submitting a completed Request to Change Applicant Biographic Information (Form 182) to ECFMG. Form 182 is available in the Resources section of the ECFMG website and from ECFMG, upon request. 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 Form 182 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, 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.
