At the July 19 bankruptcy court hearing on the closure of Hahnemann University Hospital, Hahnemann’s representatives reported that it would release residents and fellows from their contracts over the next few weeks. The anticipated release of trainees from their Hahnemann contracts represents tangible progress for trainees in transferring to new training programs.
ECFMG is following this developing situation closely and is continuing its outreach to other organizations, including the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), to exchange information and to ensure timely and meaningful updates for Hahnemann’s trainees. Please monitor this webpage for updates. Residents and fellows training at Hahnemann under ECFMG J-1 visa sponsorship should contact their ECFMG case manager with any questions or concerns.
Additional information on Hahnemann’s closure is available on this website.
