Will you accept a transcript in lieu of a diploma?
Some official documentation of graduation is required; transcripts can be accepted if they show actual graduation date and the degree earned. Practitioners can also submit a letter on official letterhead attesting to the completion of their healthcare degree in lieu of the diploma.
Do my license, CV, and diploma need to be translated?
For the IFMCP application, we do require all documents to be translated into English. However, please note these documents do not need to be official transcripts. Please provide both the original document followed by the translated version.
How long does it take for my IFMCP application to be reviewed?
It can take our team approximately 2-4 weeks for an acceptance decision to be reached. Applicants are notified of their acceptance status by email.
When do I need to apply to IFM’s Certification Program (IFMCP)?
We recommend applying to the program within your first 2-3 courses. Candidates will not be eligible for testing or updated program recordings until they are formally approved into the program. You can find the requirements for applying to the program online here.
