Exchange Visitor Sponsorship Program (EVSP)


The ECFMG|FAIMER Exchange Visitor Sponsorship Program (EVSP) continues to provide its services and communicate to relevant stakeholders about new immigration or COVID-19 issues that impact exchange visitor physicians. Review previous COVID-19 communications here. ECFMG|FAIMER remains dedicated to supporting training programs and foreign national physicians through this challenging time.


Exchange Visitor Physician Alumni Program


The Exchange Visitor Physician Alumni Program is an initiative of the Exchange Visitor Sponsorship Program (EVSP) aimed at staying connected to physicians who completed U.S. training under ECFMG sponsorship. Following their stays in the United States, J-1 exchange visitor physicians return to their home countries, taking with them new or improved clinical skills and broader global perspectives.

It is our goal to provide alumni with valuable resources while, at the same time, gaining a better understanding of their professional activities and contributions around the world.

Alumni Newsletter

The Exchange Visitor Physician Alumni Bulletin is an e-newsletter published by EVSP several times per year. Issues include a variety of content applicable to our alumni, such as peer activity highlights and publications, relevant resources, survey invitations, and news.

If you are a J-1 physician alum with good news, let us know!

Selected submissions will be featured in an upcoming issue of the Exchange Visitor Physician Alumni Bulletin.
