ECFMG Invites All Medical Schools Worldwide to Join the GEMxSM Partnership

Filed under: General

The Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG®) today announced the launch of GEMx! The program’s official launch follows successful completion of a one-year pilot, during which 20 medical schools from 16 countries, and their students, used GEMx as part of their undergraduate medical education exchange process.

Now, all medical schools from around the world are invited to join the GEMx partnership; to enjoy the benefits of GEMx’s centralized, paperless elective management system; and to offer the benefits of GEMx to their students.

Speaking about the new program, Emmanuel G. Cassimatis, M.D., ECFMG’s President & Chief Executive Officer, said, “The goal of GEMx—to increase access to international exchanges in medical education—will help provide the world’s future physicians with the international perspective required to meet health care needs in an increasingly globalized world. It also speaks directly to ECFMG’s mission of enhancing medical education and promoting quality health care.”
