    Disturbing letter from ECFMG about school accreditation

    Advertisements



    Did anyone else receive a letter from ECFMG today regarding disqualification of the school. The letter says the school is recognized by the Ministry or CAAM-HP which basically disqualifies its students to take the USMLE. This will effect students planning on graduating in or after 2018. Apparantly if you take this USMLE and your school is not on the ECFMG World Directory as "approved" then that results in irregular behavior on your part.

    At this point anyone planning on taking usmle or graduating after Jan 1 2018 wont be eligible to sit for the exam.

    Anyone else get this or is this spam?

    Unfortunately this is true. It seems all schools in St. Lucia are being disqualified starting from January1, 2018, with the exception of Spartan. New students check the ECFMG directory to make sure your school is not affected. You need to click on the "sponsor's notes" and see what ECFMG says about the status of the school.

    I am from a different school in St. Lucia, I also received this email. I guess there is a mess up at the Ministry in St. Lucia and provided wrong information. Hopefully they will fix it soon with ECFMG and correct the WHO listings. Hang in there it will be fine for all of us.
