Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates Launches Electronic Verification of Medical Credentials

The Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), recently announced the launch of an electronic process for verifying the medical education credentials of international physicians who seek entry into the U.S. health care system.  In January, a pilot program was launched with participation from approximately 20 international medical schools. Participating institutions use Credentials Verification to electronically receive and verify the medical education credentials of their students and graduates who apply to ECFMG.

The electronic Credentials Verification program represents a significant advance over the paper primary-source verification process, benefiting medical schools and their students/ graduates while maintaining ECFMG’s rigorous standards for primary-source verification.
