ECFMG 2023 Information Booklet

Introduction


Guide to On-line Services and Forms

Important Note: In 2023, we plan to launch MyIntealth, a new on-line portal that will provide access to ECFMG services. Applicants for ECFMG Certification will establish a MyIntealth account and will have one applicant record for all services. MyIntealth will replace most of ECFMG’s current on-line services and forms for applicants pursuing ECFMG Certification and U.S. graduate medical education. The launch of MyIntealth will result in changes to policies and procedures described in this booklet. Please monitor ECFMG’s website for updates.

ECFMG’s on-line services and forms for applicants pursuing ECFMG Certification are available on the ECFMG website.
