ECFMG Elaborates on ECFMG Certification for 2020 Match
ECFMG has recently launched a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page that answers common questions regarding ECFMG Certification for IMGs who have not passed the USMLE Step 2 CS Examination. The page, which includes additional information about English Language Proficiency Assessment, Eligibility, and Pathway-specific Questions, can be found here:
Although ECFMG has made clear that there will be certain requirements for which it will not make any exceptions, it may be that your particular circumstance is of such a unique nature that ECFMG will consider making an exception to one or more of its prerequisites regarding your eligibility to qualify for a particular pathway. Our office has been hired to advise and assist several IMGs in this regard.
For assistance applying to ECFMG for an exception to any ECFMG rule or to request ECFMG reconsider a prior decision regarding your eligibility to obtain services from ECFMG (including a prior punishment in connection with a finding of irregular behavior), please reach out to our office.
