About the AMRCB®

Mission:

We, the faculty of the American Medical Residency Certification Board®, seek to fairly evaluate and prepare applicants for distinguished careers in clinical practice, teaching, research, and public service within the United States and the International community. Recognizing that medical school is only the initial phase in a physician’s education, we seek to assist applicants in completing the journey to become a practicing physician in the environment of their choice.

Vision:

We seek to become globally respected nationally and internationally for our educational training, qualitative and quantitative evaluative standards, and integration across the entire medical community. We strive to set the standards that foster innovation, enrich learning, and further the educational and career goals of those who have been granted the responsibility entrusted to a physician.

Overview:

The American Medical Residency Certification Board (AMRCB®) is a certification body established to certify International Medical Schools and International Medical Graduates. The AMRCB® is not an accrediting agency, does not grant accreditation, and is not an avenue to gain certification outside of governmental and national agencies. The AMRCB® works to identify standards that are internationally repected within the United States. A rigorous certification process is undertaken to ensure that these standards are adhered to. The certification process for medical schools involves a detailed application, external review, and follows internal processes and procedures. A site visit is often required as well, although may not be mandated depending upon individual institutional needs. The process is transparent, independent, time limited to 5 years, efficient, valid, and reliable. Results will be reported to applying institutions in writing allowing an opportunity for response and corrections of any errors. The certification process by the AMRCB® is periodically reviewed to ensure that standards and procedures are fair and remain applicable.

For medical students, the certification process by the AMRCB® is voluntary and does not seek to, nor take the place of, the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG®), the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME®), the World Health Organization (WHO®), the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME®), the Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC®), or any other agency. Unlike the ECFMG®, the AMRCB® does not provide verification of credentials. The overarching purpose of the AMRCB® is to independently ensure that students from International Medical Schools have completed the basic competencies for pre-clinical and clinical medical education. This is designed to allow all students who have undergone a quality education process in the International community, which adhered to global standards, to have the opportunity to succeed in a United States medical internship or residency. The changing landscape of the healthcare delivery system in the United States is demanding an increased scrutiny on potential provider education and the overall educational delivery system.

Certification by the AMRCB® entitles Educational Bodies to advertise that they are certified, directly implying the successful completion of the certification process. Certification by the AMRCB® may also assist new international schools in achieving success with other accreditation processes as required by their applicable agencies. This certification improves the overall quality of education and health care training. The AMRCB® views certification, in part, as a necessary tool to improve and protect the quality of medical education and a tool to protect and improve the health of the population.

The stakeholders include the students, patients, governments, funding agencies, health organizations, teaching staff and educational organizations, other health professionals, and overall the general public.

Extreme efforts are undertaken to avoid any conflict of interest for all advisors, consultants, evaluators, and others who represent the AMRCB®.
