COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates 2021

The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic is creating significant challenges for the medical education community, medical regulatory agencies, physicians, and others around the world that rely on ECFMG|FAIMER programs and services. We are working actively to identify and address those challenges and to support stakeholders during this global crisis. We also have adapted some aspects of our operations to help ensure the continuity of our services and to enhance flexibility for stakeholders who also have made operational changes in response to the pandemic.

This page consolidates recent ECFMG|FAIMER news, program changes, and stakeholder communications related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to update this web page as additional resources become available.

COVID-19 updates published in 2020 are available here.
