IMG need advice for job in healthcare

Postby docval » Sat Feb 11, 2017 12:33 pm

Hello all

I will be moving to the US from France soon to join my husband and might want to apply for a job in healthcare (not as a physician) but for example as a medical assistant or go back to school to learn medical coding.
I have taken STEP 1 so I am registered with ECFMG but do not intend to take the further steps for now I need to work soon...

I am looking for a way to get my credentials/education recognized in the US to be able to apply for a job in healthcare or to a college course.
Can I use ECFMG / EPIC which has already communicated with my university? Do they deliver without going through with the steps some kind of credential information that is valid in the US (EPIC?)
Or should I go through a service suche as World education services or ECE Education credetial evaluation?

Thank you
