Hello everyone,
I am an IMG who wants to apply for a pediatric Orthopedic fellowship via 2020-2021 match.
Due to covid-19 situation, i have not been able to take my step 2 cs exam.I have cleared my step 1 and step 2 ck.
Now, usmle has declared not to conduct step2 cs till july 2021 however they have provided an alternate pathway for temporary ecfmg certification for IMGs.

So my question is that will this ECFMG certificate be considered valid for 2020-2021 match?
I ask because its not mentioned either on SF MATCH or ECFMG website.

If you receive the pathway result back soon it should be fine.

Any experience with OET instead of step 2 cs?
