Application Fee Increases for 2013

Effective January 1, 2013, the fee for submitting an Application for ECFMG Certification will increase from $50 to $60.

The fees for those applying to ECFMG for USMLE Step 1, Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK), and Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) will also increase, as described below:

  • The examination fees for USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK will increase from $790 to $820 for each exam registration.
  • The examination fee for Step 2 CS will increase from $1,375 to $1,440 for each exam registration.

The new fees will be assessed for all applications submitted to ECFMG on or after January 1, 2013.

Additionally, it is expected that Prometric will increase the Step 1/Step 2 CK international test delivery surcharges, which apply to applicants who choose a testing region other than the United States/Canada. ECFMG will post additional information on the increases to the international test delivery surcharges to the ECFMG website as it becomes available.
