As part of the Medical Council of Canada’s (MCC’s) source verification process, the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), a member of Intealth, sends a request to the institution that issued your medical credentials. If no response is received within 60 days of it being sent, you may choose to have your credential documents sent directly to the institution by courier. You will be responsible for paying all related expenses.
To do this, follow the steps below:
Once the message is received by the MCC, it can take up to 21 business days for your documents to be sent to the institution by courier service. A message will then be sent to your physiciansapply.ca account giving you the courier tracking number.
Note: If you want to have your documents sent back from the institution to the ECFMG via courier, you are responsible for arranging this service with the institution. The documents must always be sent directly from the institution. Any third-party involvement will make the verification void and it will not be accepted.
