Which qualifications need to be verified?

Most applicants will only need to have their primary medical qualification verified.  However, if you’re applying because you hold an acceptable postgraduate qualification (PGQ), you will also need to have your PGQ verified.

You don’t need to verify any other documents.

What happens if I’ve already had my qualification verified by ECFMG?

If your qualification has already been verified by ECFMG, you won’t need to have your it verified again. Simply enter your existing EPIC ID number on your application. If your qualification has already been verified by ECFMG for ECFMG Certification, or through ECFMG’s International Credentials Services (EICS), you will need to create an EPIC account.  However, ECFMG may be able to use that previously verified qualification to complete your request.  After you create your account, ECFMG will review your file, and if it is acceptable, ECFMG will add your previously verified qualifications to your EPIC Portfolio.
