The Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certifies international medical graduates (IMGs) for entry into United States graduate medical education. It also promotes medical education through programmatic and research activities. Physician migration is changing and the ECFMG responds to the needs of IMGs coming to the United States to study and to those searching for training opportunities in other countries. It seeks to provide information about national and international medical schools' accreditation status and other similar data. For ECFMG purposes, accreditation of an international medical school by an agency recognized by the Federation for Medical Education (WFME) will meet its new requirement for certification, effective in 2023.
