    Question about transfer credit ECFMG.

    Advertisements



    Hello! someone with any knowledge to this issue please help me to understand.

    on Ecfmg booklet this is what is says about transfer credit.

    "Additionally, for the purpose of ECFMG Certification, credits earned on or after January 1, 2008 that are
    transferred to the medical school that awarded or will award your medical degree must meet all of the following
    criteria:
     Credits must be transferred from one IMED-listed medical school to another IMED-listed medical school.
     Credits must be for courses taken at one medical school within seven years of the date of graduation at the
    medical school that accepts the transferred courses.
     Credits must be for courses that were passed at the medical school at which the course was taken."

    my medical classes started in January 2008, i transferred to windsor in 2009, due to financial reason i had to take some time off and i am planning to take step exam in feb or march in 2013 and i am hoping to graduate by december 2014 from windsor.
    My question is, if i went over time limit,will I be ineligible to sit in step exam or i will not get certification? what happens to those who can not graduate on time due to any reason? i can not understand this rule so someone with any knowledge, please help, and what what can i do if i am unable to graduate on time and take more thn 7 years to graduate. Thanks

    I interpret the rule as you must graduate within 7 years (from the school you transferred the credits to) of taking those transferred classes. So, if you transferred classes from Jan '08, then you must graduate from Windsor by Jan '15 in order to get ECFMG certification. As for not making it on time, I have no idea. I'd just call ECFMG directly and ask them for clarification.

    thanks for the reply,I did contact the ECFMG and they say you apply just like a regular student even if you are exceeding time limit..they can only review the file once you have applied for the USMLE
