ECFMG International Credentials Services (EICS)

EICS for Physicians

EICS credentials verification is an application-based process offered to medical registration authorities. If your medical registration authority requires EICS verification of medical credentials, the authority will provide you with its customized EICS application materials or direct you to print the application materials from this website. If you are unsure whether your medical registration authority requires EICS verification of your credentials, please contact the medical registration authority. If your authority does not require EICS verification, you can use ECFMG’s Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPICSM) to have your credentials primary-source verified, and request to have verification reports for those credentials sent to the medical registration authority, as well as to other organizations.

EICS will notify you by e-mail once your application has been processed. This e-mail will include your EICS identification number and will instruct you if additional information or credentials are required. Please include your EICS identification number on all correspondence to EICS in order to avoid potential delays.

Please refer to the EICS FAQs for answers to the most common questions about EICS and the EICS application.
