About the MyECFMG Mobile App

The MyECFMG mobile app is a free, downloadable tool that enables applicants for ECFMG Certification to access their ECFMG account information, view important status updates, and more. ECFMG created this app as a convenience for applicants, providing on-the-go access to information that typically would be accessed via other means.

  • View information in your applicant record and change your contact information
  • View your Application for ECFMG Certification
  • View your exam history and the status of USMLE® exam applications
  • View the status of your medical education credentials
  • View the status of certification verification report (CVS) requests for U.S. state medical boards
  • View your ECFMG financial account and make payments
  • Purchase an Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) Token, view information about your ERAS application and supporting documentation, upload a photograph, and select available letters of recommendation (LoRs) for reuse. Receive push notifications related to uploading a photo and reusing LoRs.
  • View information about your J-1 visa sponsorship and sponsored dependents
  • Request ECFMG forms be sent to you by e-mail
