Through EPIC, ECFMG provides access to a high-quality service that verifies the authenticity of credentials related to a physician’s medical education, training, and registration/licensure. This primary-source verification is a best practice and the best protection against fraudulent credentials.
Potential Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Primary-source Verification Services
ECFMG|FAIMER is closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We are aware that many organizations, governments, and other entities around the world are taking precautions to protect staff, clients, and the public. Some of these precautions, such as travel restrictions and the temporary closure of medical schools and other institutions, may cause temporary delays in our primary-source credential verification services. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
