ECFMG partners with Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Canada to primary-source verify the medical credentials of internationally educated physicians who are applying to work with MSF Canada. Successful MSF applicants who graduated from medical schools located outside of Canada and the United States will be advised by MSF to have all required medical credentials verified through EPIC as part of the application process.
To have your credentials verified through EPIC in support of an application to MSF, you must complete the following steps:
confirming that your medical school is listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools and has a Sponsor Note that states students and graduates of your medical school are eligible to apply for ECFMG Certification.
See http://www.doctorswithoutborders.ca/application-process for details about the application process.
Candidates who successfully pass the interview stage will be advised to have their credentials verified through EPIC, and the fees for using EPIC to verify the required credentials will be paid by MSF. MSF will only pay EPIC fees for those candidates who are advised to use EPIC. Complete instructions will be provided to you by MSF.
If you have any questions regarding EPIC and the EPIC verification process, please contact EPIC at email@example.com or +1 (215) 966-3900. Telephone assistance is available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time in the United States.
If you have questions regarding the MSF application process, please contact MSF at firstname.lastname@example.org.
