A residency may follow the internship year or include the internship year as the first year of residency. The residency can also be followed by a fellowship, during which the physician is trained in a sub-specialty.

ECFMG is a world leader in promoting quality health care—serving physicians, members of the medical education and regulatory communities, health care consumers, and those researching issues in medical education and health workforce planning. International medical graduates (IMGs) comprise one-quarter of the U.S. physician workforce. Certification by ECFMG is the standard for evaluating the qualifications of these physicians before they enter U.S. graduate medical education (GME), where they provide supervised patient care. ECFMG Certification also is a requirement for IMGs to take Step 3 of the three-step United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) and to obtain an unrestricted license to practice medicine in the United States. Through more than five decades of certifying IMGs, ECFMG has developed unparalleled expertise on the world’s medical schools, the credentials they issue to their graduates, and the verification of those credentials. ECFMG is a private, nonprofit organization whose members are: American Board of Medical Specialties;American Medical Association; Association of American Medical Colleges; Association for Hospital Medical Education; Federation of State Medical Boards of the United States, Inc.; and National Medical Association.
The ECFMG International Credentials Services (EICS) serves international organizations and authorities involved in medical registration, licensing, and assessment. For these clients, EICS obtains primary-source verification of the credentials of physician applicants who completed their medical education outside the authorities' jurisdiction. The physician credentials verified by EICS include medical school diplomas, medical school transcripts, certificates of postgraduate medical training, and certificates of medical registration or licensure. In providing this service, ECFMG utilizes its well-established and internationally recognized procedures for verifying medical education credentials, first developed for the purpose of ECFMG Certification
ERAS Support Services at ECFMG
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) developed the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) to allow medical school students and graduates to apply electronically for residency positions in accredited U.S. programs of medical education. Students and graduates of U.S. medical schools/programs are assisted in the ERAS process by the Dean’s office at their medical schools. Since ERAS was established in 1996, ECFMG has served as the designated Dean’s office for students and graduates of international medical schools, including Fifth Pathway participants, assisting these individuals with the ERAS application process for first- and second-year (PGY-1 and PGY-2) residency positions. International medical students/graduates who apply to programs that participate in ERAS begin the application process by requesting an ERAS Token, a unique identification number, from ECFMG. The Token allows applicants to access AAMC’s ERAS website, where they can complete their residency application, select the programs to which they will apply, and assign supporting documents to these programs. As the designated Dean’s office, ECFMG receives supporting documents for the ERAS application, such as Medical Student Performance Evaluations, medical school transcripts, letters of recommendation, and photographs from applicants and their medical schools. ECFMG then transmits these documents to the ERAS PostOffice. ECFMG also transmits to the ERAS PostOffice reports of an applicant’s ECFMG certification status and, if requested by the applicant, USMLE transcripts. Once supporting documents have been received at the ERAS PostOffice, they can be downloaded by the programs to which the applicant has applied.
