Exchange Visitor Sponsorship Program (EVSP)
COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) ANNOUNCEMENT
The ECFMG|FAIMER Exchange Visitor Sponsorship Program (EVSP) continues to review and process J-1 visa sponsorship applications, including those of foreign national physicians seeking initial sponsorship to enter the United States to begin a training program on July 1, 2020. Please submit your applications as early as possible to help prevent delays. We will contact Training Program Liaisons (TPLs) and current J-1 physicians about any new developments, including updates on visa issuance at U.S. embassies and consulates, directly via e-mail and will post updates on our website. ECFMG|FAIMER is actively pursuing solutions to support training programs and foreign national physicians through this challenging time.
For J-1 Applicants/Physicians
Exchange Visitor Physician Alumni Program
The Exchange Visitor Physician Alumni Program is an initiative of EVSP aimed at staying connected to physicians who completed U.S. training under ECFMG sponsorship. Following their stays in the United States, exchange visitor (EV) physicians return to their home countries, taking with them new or improved clinical skills and broader global perspectives.
It is our goal to provide these alumni with valuable resources while, at the same time, gaining a better understanding of the professional activities and the contributions of former EV physicians around the world.
The Exchange Visitor Physician Alumni Bulletin is an e-newsletter published by EVSP several times per year. Issues include a variety of content applicable to our alumni, such as exclusive survey invitations, alumni activity highlights and publications, relevant resources, and news.
If you are an EV physician alum with good news, let us know!
- Share your achievements using the EVs Around the World Submission Form.
- Share your recent publications using the EV Alumni Publication Submission Form.
Selected submissions will be featured in an upcoming issue of the Exchange Visitor Physician Alumni Bulletin.
If you are an EVSP alum and you would like to receive the Exchange Visitor Physician Alumni Bulletin, please send an e-mail to EVSPalumni@ecfmg.org with your name and USMLE/ECFMG ID number.
