Modern Healthcare Again Names ECFMG/FAIMER a Best Workplace

Philadelphia-Based Non-Profit Also Receives Family-Friendliest Workplace Award

For the second consecutive year, the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) and its Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) have been selected by Modern Healthcare as a Best Place to Work in Healthcare. ECFMG/FAIMER also received the Family-Friendliest Workplace Award for the second year in a row, and was a finalist for the Healthiest Workplace Award.

The Best Places to Work in Healthcare program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the health care industry nationwide. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey.

“Being recognized by Modern Healthcare as a best place to work nationally is a tremendous honor, especially because it is based on the feedback of our employees,” said William W. Pinsky, M.D., President and CEO of ECFMG and Board Chair of FAIMER. “This honor reflects the passion our employees have for ECFMG/FAIMER and our vision to improve world health through excellence in medical education.”

Modern Healthcare published a feature story on ECFMG/FAIMER as the recipient of the Family-Friendliest Workplace Award. The complete list of this year’s winners is available here. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring ranked lists of all the winners with the October 1 issue.

In addition to the Modern Healthcare honor, ECFMG/FAIMER was recognized earlier this year as a Top Workplace in Philadelphia by the Philadelphia Media Network, publishers of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News.
