FEDERATION CREDENTIALS VERIFICATION SERVICE (FCVS)
FCVS establishes a permanent, lifetime repository of primary-source verified core credentials for physicians and physician assistants. We keep a record of everything from medical diplomas to identification documents — so physicians and physician assistants don't have to go through the time and effort of assembling and forwarding this information every time they need to be licensed or credentialed.
The core credentials information collected and stored by FCVS includes:
- Physician and Physician Assistant identity
- Medical education records (including Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates certification)
- Graduate medical education records
- Examination history
- Disciplinary history
