ECFMG may provide international medical schools with data on the performance of their students and graduates who apply to ECFMG for USMLE Step 1 and Step 2. Medical schools have the opportunity to obtain performance data on examinees individually and, under certain criteria, in aggregate. In 2009, ECFMG began to provide international medical schools with data on the USMLE performance of individual students/graduates. In 2010, ECFMG began to provide international medical schools with aggregate data on the USMLE performance of their students/graduates. ECFMG provides these services at no cost to medical schools.
International medical schools have long expressed interest in obtaining USMLE performance data on their students/graduates, and ECFMG’s efforts to provide such data are proving mutually beneficial for the medical schools and for ECFMG.
Individual performance data are provided to medical schools electronically through the ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP) and include whether each examinee passed or failed the exam administration and, for Step 1 and Step 2 CK, the examinee’s numerical score if one was provided for their test administration. Examinees have the option to have their exam results withheld from their medical school.
To be eligible to obtain these data, schools must meet certain criteria, including establishing an EMSWP account and participation in both the EMSWP Status Verification program and the EMSWP Credentials Verification program.
If you are a representative of an international medical school and would like to obtain individual performance data on your school’s students/graduates, e-mail the ECFMG EMSWP Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to establish an EMSWP account. For more information on all of the services available to medical schools through EMSWP, visit the EMSWP page.
Aggregate performance data, including pass rates by examination, may be made available to eligible medical schools on an annual basis. Examinees who request to have their individual exam results withheld from their medical school will not be excluded from Aggregate Data Reports; however, individual examinees will not be identifiable.
If you are a representative of an international medical school and would like to obtain aggregate performance data on your school’s students/graduates, e-mail the ECFMG EMSWP Administrator at email@example.com to obtain a Performance Information Agreement.
