CVS for Requesting Organizations

Other Organizations

Hospitals, HMOs, and other organizations that require confirmation of ECFMG Certification for employment purposes may submit those requests via CVS ON-LINE or by submitting a completed request form (Form 236A) to ECFMG. All requests must include the ECFMG-assigned organization number. The fee for this service is $40.00 per report.

The completed Confirmation of Certification Report will include the following information:

  • Whether an individual is ECFMG certified;
  • Date the certificate was issued and the date(s) through which the certificate remains valid for the purpose of entry into graduate medical education;
  • Date of most recently passed CSA; and
  • Name of medical school, medical school country, and degree year.
