ECFMG is pleased to announce its collaboration with the Health Professions Councils of Namibia (HPCNA) to incorporate ECFMG’s Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPICSM) into the process for assessing the medical credentials of Namibia’s international medical graduates (IMGs), those physicians who obtained their basic medical qualification outside of Namibia. HPCNA now requires all IMGs applying for registration to have required medical credentials primary-source verified through EPIC. EPIC provides HPCNA with ECFMG’s rigorous, internationally recognized primary-source verification while offering additional benefits such as a secure, web-based platform for authenticating physician credentials, and paperless processing and recordkeeping. For IMGs, EPIC offers a service that they can use throughout their careers to build a digital portfolio of verified credentials related to their medical education, training, and registration/licensure.
