*If your medical school participates in the ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP) ERAS program, you will not be able to submit an MSPE or medical school transcript using ECFMG’s On-line Applicant Status and Information System (OASIS). Please contact your medical school to have these document types submitted via EMSWP ERAS on your behalf.

To find out if your medical school participates in EMSWP ERAS, you can use the MyECFMG mobile app or contact the Dean’s office of your medical school.
