Verification of Medical Credentials in relation to applicants and institutions in Crimea
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 Crimea.
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 27 January 2016 the ECFMG was advised by OFAC officials that it is permitted to engage in verification activities for medical credentials issued in Crimea. 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 2 6270 7878 (AEST Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm).
