The new transition from previous online support services to the new MyIntealth portal has been a source of great stress to IMGs applying for the 2024 Match. Understandably, there is a lot of confusion surrounding the launch, but there are several new benefits to transitioning fully to MyIntealth. Some of these include using a single online platform for all services, as opposed to having multiple platforms (OASIS, IWA, etc.) as was the case before this new update. Subsequently, this creates one username/password for all services. Additionally, MyIntealth will reduce the use of paper forms and offer convenience for foreign medical graduates by creating an online platform to submit forms on time. 

 

The ECFMG systems were paused from January 10th to January 29th, in anticipation of the MyIntealth launch. Since the launch has been delayed, ECFMG unpaused its services, including EMSWP to verify medical education credentials, uploading supporting documents to ERAS; Clinical Skills Attestation Portal to attest that graduates are meeting communication and clinical requirements for ECFMG certification through pathways 3-5; CVS to request confirmation of ECFMG certification; EVNet to support J-1 visa applicants; and EPIC to access verification reports of certain physicians.

 

As of now, the MyIntealth launch has been postponed with no known launch date. 

 

 

My Intealth Portal Account Migration: What to Expect and Do

 

Understanding Account Migration: What Gets Transitioned, What Doesn’t, and What to Do if Your Account Moves, Including Tech Glitches

 

You will be able to establish a new account with MyIntealth when it launches. As of now, the site is still under development. All user data from existing ECFMG services will be transferred automatically if you are an existing user, and this migration is mandatory. All data, including USMLE exam transcripts, Pathways data, and other exam data will be transferred to NRMP before the Rank Order List deadline.  

 

Certain services will not be transitioned to MyIntealth during the launch. These include the FAIMER division, which will be transferred at a later date, and the ECFMG Pathways application. 

 

Here is a table outlining the various tasks to complete to adequately prepare for the MyIntealth transition, with all information taken directly from www.ecfmg.org:
