For physicians, EPIC is an innovative way to build a digital career portfolio of the credentials related to your medical education, training, and registration/licensure. You can upload credentials, have those credentials primary-source verified, and request reports verifying the authenticity of those credentials for any organization, anywhere in the world.
By choosing a career in medicine, you have chosen to assume a role in the care and well-being of others. Throughout your career—for example as a medical student, physician-in-training, practicing clinician, researcher, or teacher—you will be called upon to demonstrate that you are qualified to meet this responsibility.
An essential component of demonstrating your qualifications is establishing the authenticity of your credentials, including your medical school diploma, medical school transcripts, postgraduate medical education credentials, and certificates of medical registration/licensure.
If you are a physician, EPIC provides:
For the entities that register/license, train, educate, and employ physicians, EPIC is a powerful tool in their mission to protect the public. These organizations can use EPIC to obtain primary-source verification of the authenticity of their applicants’ credentials—the best protection against fraudulent credentials—at no cost.
If you belong to a medical licensing authority, residency or fellowship program, medical school, hospital, or other organization that evaluates physicians, EPIC provides:
To get the most from EPIC, make it part of your process for evaluating your physician applicants. By simply requiring that your physician applicants use EPIC to demonstrate the authenticity of their medical credentials, you will have the confidence of knowing that those credentials have been primary-source verified by ECFMG—at no cost to your organization.
Your applicants also benefit from EPIC. They get a reliable and easy-to-use method for demonstrating the authenticity of their credentials and, like you, they will enjoy the convenience and security of EPIC’s web-based process. After establishing their account, applicants upload their credentials to EPIC. ECFMG verifies the authenticity of these credentials directly with the issuing institution. Applicants can then request to send you credentials and their verification reports electronically.
And the fees they pay for using EPIC are affordable. After establishing an EPIC account, physicians simply pay a fee for each credential they upload and for each report they request.
Access the EPIC Report Portal
Any physician who uses EPIC can request to send you an EPIC report verifying the authenticity of his/her credentials. When an EPIC report is sent to you, ECFMG will notify you. You can view reports, along with copies of the credentials, conveniently and securely through the EPIC Report Portal. Each report provides assurance that the credential has been primary-source verified by ECFMG.
EPIC offers you the flexibility to choose between two options for secure, electronic access to reports: the EPIC Report Portal Account and the One-time Use Portal. EPIC reports are valid only if obtained through one of these secure reporting options, so you can have the confidence of knowing you are receiving the credentials and verifications directly from ECFMG.
