This Information Booklet reflects information available and requirements in place at the time of publication (September 14, 2022). International medical graduates pursuing ECFMG Certification should monitor the ECFMG and USMLE websites for the most current information.
In 2021, ECFMG and its Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER®) announced a new, overarching identity, Intealth. This new identity reflects an integrated approach to our operations and our enhanced ability to support the health professions worldwide. As a member of Intealth, ECFMG continues to administer its portfolio of programs and services, including its program of ECFMG Certification, and to support international medical graduates who seek entry to graduate medical education in the United States. To learn more, please visit Intealth on the ECFMG website.
In 2023, we plan to launch MyIntealth, a new on-line portal that will provide access to ECFMG services. Applicants for ECFMG Certification will establish a MyIntealth account and will have one applicant record for all services. MyIntealth will replace most of ECFMG’s current on-line services and forms for applicants pursuing ECFMG Certification and U.S. graduate medical education. The launch of MyIntealth will result in changes to policies and procedures described in this booklet. Please monitor ECFMG’s website for updates.
To be eligible to participate in the National Resident Matching Program (the Match), international medical graduates must have satisfied the examination requirements for ECFMG Certification by the NRMP’s Rank Order List Certification deadline. See Examinations for ECFMG Certification for more information.
