Intealth and its members, ECFMG and FAIMER, are monitoring closely the events in Ukraine. As an organization that serves global clienteles, we have an acute awareness of the impacts that this situation is having on ALL medical school students and graduates as they pursue their medical education and training. As an organization concerned with health professionals and their delivery of health care, we are concerned for the safety and well-being of ALL individuals impacted by this situation.
We recently made the difficult decision to pause ECFMG Certification services requested by Russian citizens residing in Russia. We look forward to a time when we can resume our ECFMG Certification services to Russian applicants.
Earlier this month, 30 Russian physicians and 10 Ukrainian physicians were selected for positions in U.S. training programs that begin later this year. For those seeking J-1 visas, we will do our best to assist them in visa processing.
We have established dedicated resources to support ALL applicants for ECFMG Certification affected by this situation. To access individualized support on the status of an application or payment, applicants should send e-mail to email@example.com.
