PETITION FOR CRIMEAN PHYSICIANS TO ECFMG
On July 2nd 2015, the educational commission for foreign medical graduates or ECFMG, which is responsible for verification of credentials related to medical education, training, and licensure, announced that this commission is no longer accepting application from CRIMEAN physicians.
We know this happened with our Iranian, Sudanese and Cuban colleagues and the issues were solved. We strongly condemn this unfair and utterly discriminatory policy which is a clear example of national or political origin discrimination.
We demand immediate revision of these policies and restoration of normal services to Crimean applicants just like any other applicant from anywhere else in the world.
