ECFMG|FAIMER works continuously to better understand the unique challenges faced by foreign national physicians, and specifically J-1 exchange visitor physicians, through the administration of an annual well-being survey and other wellness initiatives. The following resources were compiled to assist training institutions and foreign national physicians in removing potential barriers to well-being and addressing well-being issues. ECFMG|FAIMER has made reasonable efforts to ensure that these resources are relevant and useful, but does not endorse, own, or certify the accuracy of any third-party links.
For more context and additional well-being content, view the Supporting the Well-being of Exchange Visitor Physicians learning module.
It is the duty and privilege of ECFMG|FAIMER’s Exchange Visitor Sponsorship Program (EVSP) to support the health, safety, and welfare of every J-1 physician during sponsorship. If you are, or know of, a J-1 physician in need of well-being support, please contact us. EVSP wants to be a resource for you.
