IMG Workgroup

The 2019 Washington State Legislature passed Second Substitute Bill 5846 into law. The bill creates the International Medical Graduate (IMG) Assistance Workgroup charged with studying and reporting recommendations to the Governor and the legislature by December 1, 2019. The workgroup must provide recommendations related to integrating international medical graduates into the Washington residency system among other related requirements. The Washington Medical Commission is charged with providing staff support to this workgroup and will submit the final report on its behalf.
