Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates

For J-1 Host Institutions

Training Program Liaisons (TPLs) are individuals designated by a host institution to facilitate the J-1 physician sponsorship application process and ensure compliance with federal requirements for participation. Refer to the Roles and Responsibilities webpage for more information.

Adding a New TPL

Only an institution’s Designated Institutional Official (DIO) can request that a new TPL be added. The DIO must complete, sign, and submit the Request to Add a New Training Program Liaison (TPL) form. Upon receipt of the DIO’s request, ECFMG will e-mail the prospective TPL with instructions to:

  • Review a PowerPoint tutorial outlining the role and responsibilities of a TPL, the goals and objective of the J-1 program, and guidelines for ECFMG J-1 sponsorship.
  • Return a required acknowledgement form confirming completion of the tutorial.

Once the acknowledgement form is received by ECFMG, the new TPL will be sent instructions to create an Exchange Visitor Network (EVNet) account.

  • Reports on currently sponsored physicians at their programs/institution
  • J-1 insurance reporting compliance
  • Status of initial validations
  • Applicant-specific information
  • Resources, including tutorials and an EVNet user guide
  • Forms

For assistance accessing or using EVNet, contact EVSP by phone at (215) 823-2121, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time in the United States, or by e-mail at
