Thanks to WFME Recognition of NVAO, doctors will retain access to the US after 2023
The Accreditation Organisation of The Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO) has been awarded the WFME Recognition Status. One of the benefits of the WFME Recognition Status is the ECFMG eligibility for medical graduates. Effective in 2023, eligibility for USMLE and employment as a doctor in the United States will be restricted to graduates from medical schools/programmes accredited by an agency which is recognised by the WFME Recognition Programme or to an equivalent standard. NVAO is the first quality assurance organisation in the European Union to receive this recognition.
