International Medical Graduates
To provide direct patient care, physicians in the United States are required to complete a three to seven year graduate medical program -- accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) -- in one of the recognized medical specialties.
For information about the ECFMG and US-MLE rules and regulations, visit the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates website at www.ecfmg.org.
To learn how you can sign up for the US-MLE exam, contact the National Board of Medical Examiners at www.usmle.org.
Any non-U.S. citizen wishing to participate in a U.S. graduate medical education program must possess a visa that permits direct patient care. The appropriate visa application should be submitted well in advance of the anticipated date of enrollment. Contact American embassies, consulates, or U.S. district offices of the Immigration and Naturalization Service to obtain further information.
Licensing and Board Certification
A physician must obtain a license from the medical board of the state where he or she plans to practice after completion of residency training and/or certification. Contact the Federation of State Medical Boards of the U.S., Inc. (FSMB) at www.fsmb.org.
