ECFMG’s Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPIC) Welcomes the Bahamas Medical Council

ECFMG is pleased to announce its collaboration with the Bahamas Medical Council to incorporate ECFMG’s Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPICSM) into the Council’s process for assessing the medical credentials of physicians who wish to practice medicine in the Bahamas. Effective January 1, the Council requires applicants who did not graduate from medical school at the University of the West Indies to have their medical credentials primary-source verified through EPIC before submitting their registration applications to the Council. ECFMG is proud to partner with the Bahamas Medical Council to add primary-source verification—a best practice and the best protection against fraudulent credentials—to the Council’s tools for evaluating the qualifications of physicians in the Bahamas.
