Eligibility for Examination

Reverification of Eligibility

ECFMG reserves the right to reverify your eligibility for examination at any time during the application and registration process. If your medical school informs ECFMG that your status has changed, and ECFMG determines you are no longer eligible for examination, your registration will be canceled. If you have failed to inform ECFMG of this change in your status, it may result in a finding of irregular behavior and permanent annotation of your ECFMG record. See Policies and Procedures Regarding Irregular Behavior.

For medical school students, ECFMG may reverify your status as a student officially enrolled in medical school. When a medical school does not participate in ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP) Status Verification, ECFMG’s reverification of the status of the school’s students may include ECFMG sending a written request for reverification by postal mail to the medical school. If reverification is requested by ECFMG, ECFMG may cancel your registration or withhold your score report until ECFMG has received reverification of your status directly from the medical school. If your registration is canceled, you may be required to reapply.

For medical school graduates, ECFMG may reverify your medical education credentials with the issuing medical school. If such reverification is requested by ECFMG, you will be registered for examination only after ECFMG has received reverification of your credentials directly from the medical school. If reverification is requested by ECFMG after you have been registered for examination, ECFMG may cancel your registration or withhold your score report until ECFMG has received reverification of your medical education credentials directly from the issuing school. If your registration is canceled, you may be required to reapply.
