Verification of Medical Credentials in relation to applicants and institutions from Cuba


The AMC’s source verification provider of credentials, the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), will resume the processing of requests for verification of medical credentials issued by educational, health care, and medical registration/licensing institutions in Cuba.

As previously announced, ECFMG was not processing such requests pending clarification of restrictions by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

On July 16 2015, the ECFMG was advised by OFAC officials that it is permitted to engage in verification activities for medical credentials issued in Cuba. Further information can be found at the ECFMG website.

With the recent announcement by ECFMG, the AMC is now able to process any effected applications as quickly as possible. If AMC candidates require any further information, please contact the AMC directly on +61 (0) 2 6270-7878 between 10am and 4pm AEST.
