Standard service turnaround time is approximately 10 business days. This may be longer depending on the program's workload and whether the physician's file is off-site in cold storage. If you have a strict deadline, we recommend using the expedited service that will provide verification in 3 business days or less after cleared payment. If you need a custom verification form completed, these typically take longer than the VGMET form.

The fastest method of receiving a completed verification form is via a download from your status page. This is included in all verification requests. Receiving a copy by mail or fax will take longer.

Please note that turnaround times (including expedited times) cannot be guaranteed; however if you paid for expedited service and the program is unable to fulfill your request within 3 business days, you may request a refund for the difference between the standard and expedited service cost.

Prices are set by each training program, and vary depending on turnaround time and whether you will accept the standard VGMET form. Your total cost will be displayed on the order page before you submit payment.

In an effort to improve and streamline the credentialing process, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), American Hospital Association (AHA), National Association of Medical Staff Services (NAMSS), and Organization of Program Directors Associations (OPDA) collaborated in 2016 to create a standardized “Verification of Graduate Medical Education Training” (VGMET) form. This form aims to standardize the training verification process and alleviate these burdens placed on hospitals, medical services professionals and program directors.
