PHILADELPHIA, UNITED STATES—The Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) has been recognized as one of Modern Healthcare’s 2017 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. In addition to this honor, ECFMG ranked first among healthcare suppliers in the special categories of “Healthiest Workplace” and “Most Family-friendly Workplace”—making it the only organization to receive two first-place finishes at the awards dinner held last night in Las Vegas.

ECFMG President and CEO, William W. Pinsky, MD, is proud of this accomplishment and of ECFMG. “We are a relatively small organization, but thanks to the dedication of our employees, we are making outsized contributions to the quality of healthcare being delivered around the world,” he said.

In addition to considering the various benefits and training and development opportunities made available to employees, judges determined the winning workplaces based on employee survey responses. “I’m pleased that Modern Healthcare has recognized ECFMG as one of the top healthcare workplaces, and even more pleased to know that ECFMG employees agree,” said Dr. Pinsky.
