Each month, the ECFMG Certificate Holders Office (ECHO) publishes free resources for ECFMG-certified physicians, and those about to be certified, who are planning their careers.
ECHO is pleased to announce the following new resources for January.
- Match Week is quickly approaching, and it is time to put the potential training programs you interviewed with in order and then submit your rank order list to the NRMP®. Besides reflecting on your interviews with these programs and where you would most like to train, there is much to consider, such as deadlines, policies, and procedures. Visit our new resource NRMP Rank Order Lists: Some Important Considerations to find out more about this process.
- Do you know what to do if you find out you are unmatched for 2013? We asked the executive director of the National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP) to explain the organization’s Supplemental Offer and Acceptance ProgramSM (SOAP SM) that was put into place to help unmatched applicants find unfilled positions during Match week. Read all about it in Ask the Experts: NRMP’s Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program (SOAP).
In addition to providing valuable resources, ECHO offers certified physicians ways to stay connected with ECFMG and its expertise. Through ECHO, certified physicians can also connect with information from other organizations and experts, and each other. ECHO offers new ways for certified physicians to communicate with ECFMG, for example, by participating in ECHO’s monthly surveys and sending feedback to ECHO.
