Step 1 registration at ecfmg


I am graduated 5 years ago outside the US.During the registration I saw that it is required to complete clerkships with month and year.I don’t remember exactly the date as they were 5 years ago.Is it important to complete clerkships?


Hello @Alda. This seems to be more of a specific ECFMG question. Did you contact ECFMG? I am sure if ECFMG asks for such criteria then it must be accurate.
