On March 6, 2017, President Trump signed a new executive order that limits the entry of certain foreign nationals to the United States. This new order replaces Executive Order 13769, which was signed on January 27.
At this time, ECFMG is reviewing the new order in consultation with immigration counsel and other organizations in the U.S. medical education community. As we determine what impacts the new order might have on international medical students and graduates, we will communicate directly with individuals that we believe may be affected. We also will provide updates to officials of U.S. graduate medical education programs.
As updates become available, they also will be posted to our Resources on Executive Order web page. Please monitor this web page for the latest information.
