Yeah. I know. I was asking if I will know when it has been sent to ECFMG. I'm already ECFMG certified, so ECFMG won't be sending to my school.

Will the document status on that pane change when they send to ECFMG?


Were you previously ECFMG certified before registering with MCC?
I am asking mentioned you're certified and they won't be sending to your school.

Dear all,

Please help, is it only one document e.g mbbs certificate that I will upload for source verification On the physiciansapply.ca site? I am confused because on the website I saw a list of documents including Transcript, medical license and internship documents. By my calculation I have about 7 documents. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance....

U only need your mbbs certificate for source verification to get an ECA report. A notarised copy of the certificate along with ur international passport and certified identity form printed from your account should be sent via courier to mcc. Please read the page 0 of this thread to have a better understanding of the process.

Good news for me!!
My certificate has now been verified. I have now applied for ECA.
Timeline (to help others)
Documents sent to MCC- May 4
Received - May 9
Viewable online- May 14
Under review - June 4
Reviewed and not accepted- June 4. This was due to a part of the certificate not showing on the photocopy
Another photocopy sent via email- June 4
Reviewed and accepted- June 29
Ready for ECFMG submission- June 29
Submitted to ECFMG- June 30
Verification returned (passed)- July 6

I kept contacting them via chat on a weekly basis to know the status of my application.
I'm glad I've gone pass this stage. The photocopying error caused me an extra 4 weeks.
Thank you all.
fatiah:


Ok. But I'm surprised it's still at that stage since its almost a month it was recieved. It should have been at least sent to ECFMG by now if not even verified. I really don't know what could be causing d delay. Maybe their workload has increased. I guess u just have to keep calling and hopefully they comply.

Thanks for sharing your timeline. I'm pleasantly surprised that they accepted the second copy u sent via email. It would have been extra expenses to send again via courier.

When I first saw their email that my document was rejected my heart skipped, until I saw where they said I didn't need to notarize it and I could scan and send via email.

MBBS is assessed to be equivalent to Doctor of Medicine (MD) which evaluated as a professional degree

Anyway, we do not evaluate our credentials through WES. its done through mcc Canada. Check out their site for info. www.mcc.ca
Thus far, i have gathered the following info as regards an MBBS ECA.
1)open an account on www.physiciansapply.ca a $278 non-refundable fee is charged.
2)request for a source verification (svr) of your qualification on the physicians apply site (this is done through ECFMG). It costs $157.
3)Send mcc a copy of your mbbs degree and a cover letter (downloaded from your physicians apply account) via courier.
4)2-3 working days after receiving no. 3, ECFMG sends a request for a source verification of your degree to your school via regular mail (with a copy of your degree, a form to be filled and a pre-addressed envelope). If the school does not respond within 60 days, they will send another request to the school. At this point you can opt for a courier delivery to your school. They will only repeat this step 4 up to a maximum of 3 times.
5)ECFMG responds to your school and processes your verification within 20 working days and then you can proceed to step 6.
6)Request for an ECA from mcc. this would cost $102 and would take 21 working days to process.
7)Pay a courier fee for delivery of your ECA to Nigeria (about $140).
Note that step 2 may take as long as 100 days or more seeing as most Nigerian schools claim not to receive this mail. To speed up your process, you wanna keep tabs on your school right after ecfmg requests for a source verification and ensure they check their mail and then you pay for a courier delivery back to ecfmg.

Hello,
Please is ECFMG sending a copy of my certificate via email or Courier to my school? And is my school supposed to fill the said form and send via email or via Courier services like DHL back to ECFMG. Reason am asking is because you stated pre-addressed envelope on your write up...

Secondly, what and what am I supposed to get notorized Is it everything am sending or the downloaded form and my international passport?


Thanks.

I see my post made it onto a new thread. You may not have intended to pass it on as yours but you for at least copy my name join the content and credit me on the post instead of cc-ing me naaaaaaa. Anyway i think there is a lil correction to step 4. It is only after ecfmg has sent the request 3 times (60 days x 3) and are yet to get a response from your school before you can request for the svr to be sent by courier.

I learnt they do both most times. For my school (Lautech), an email and response was via same means. A friend who studied in Ukraine had hers sent via regular post which took 6weeks to get delivered, her school claimed not to have gotten any email.
I'll suggest that you find out from your school the means through which they've been receiving such request.
