Exchange Visitor Sponsorship Program (EVSP)
Pre-arrival Information for ECFMG-sponsored J-1 Exchange Visitors
Welcome to ECFMG’s Exchange Visitor Sponsorship Program (EVSP)!
ECFMG is authorized by the U.S. Department of State (DoS) to sponsor foreign national physicians as Exchange Visitors in accredited clinical training programs or their directly associated fellowships. The objectives of the ECFMG’s EVSP are to enhance international exchange in the field of medicine and to promote mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through the interchange of persons, knowledge, and skills. It is ECFMG’s hope that your time in the United States will be educationally and professionally rewarding and include enriching cross-cultural experiences.
