Important Information for Students Considering Transferring from Medical Schools Impacted by Hurricane Irma

ECFMG would like to express our continued concern for everyone impacted by Hurricane Irma and its aftermath and voice our support for those involved in ongoing relief efforts.

We understand that some medical students enrolled in Caribbean medical schools experiencing a disruption of services as a result of Hurricane Irma are considering transferring to other medical schools. Before considering a transfer to another medical school, students interested in pursuing ECFMG Certification are strongly advised to ensure they would still meet ECFMG’s requirements for certification, including the medical school requirements, transfer credit requirements, and medical education credentials requirements. If you are a medical student impacted by Hurricane Irma and have any questions, ECFMG staff is ready to assist you. We encourage you to contact ECFMG’s Applicant Information Services by phone at +1 (215) 386-5900 (9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m., Eastern Time in the United States, Monday through Friday), or by e-mail at
