  I am afraid you can't apply because your step1 score was in 2009 and step 2 ck is 2018. you pass 7years rules. did you apply for your ECFMG certification ?

  you can apply without ECFMG certificate but your step1 score was already expired. you need take it again to get ECFMG certificate. but I am also not that much familiar with this issue.

  You will be getting ECFMG certificate only after all the steps are completed that is Step1 and Step2 exam.
it takes normally 1-3 days to get ECFMG certificate and it will be directly submitted to the programs or else you can email the programs directly about the ECFMG certificate.

  Try to do hands-on rotations to improve the CV which can help your application to improve the chance of getting matched and complete the Step3 exam this will strengthen the application.

  Some programs specify: 6 months or 1 year. In general - after 2 years it is definitely old. I asked the same person to give me another with newer date.
