ECFMG Shares Perspective

As internal medicine is the top specialty choice of international medical graduates, academic internal medicine will be the “canary in the [coal] mine” for the effects of the executive orders, explained William Pinsky, MD, President and CEO, ECFMG. Dr. Pinsky spoke at a plenary session during Academic Internal Medicine Week 2017 and suggested several points as we move ahead:

  1. Include contingency plans for addressing potential scenarios, such as unfilled resident spots by July 1, or the IMG applicant pool decreases
  2. Study impact on match results and analyze trends in citizenship and placement of IMGs (even beyond the six banned countries)
  3. Internal medicine programs can help by educating the public and lawmakers on the contributions of IMGs, and collaborate with other specialties in the U.S. medical education community
