Guiding Brazilian Physicians



On July 14, 2020, we had the opportunity to learn from plastic surgeon Gabriele C. Miotto, M.D., M.Ed., and attorney Fernanda Hottle, J.D. as they shared a guide for Brazilian physicians on how to extend their M.D. journey through foreign markets, specifically the United States.

During the webinar, which was offered in Portuguese and sponsored by BACC-SE and GSU-CIBER, Dr. Miotto shared the story of her professional journey from Santa Catarina, Brazil, to Atlanta, GA. She shared valuable resources and presented three critical elements to succeed in the passage:

  1. Be fluent in English. This is essential for passing Step 2 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).
  2. Diploma validation by Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG); and
  3. Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Training to fulfill Step 3 of licensing exam.

Additionally, Fernanda Hottle, as an experienced immigration lawyer, provided clarification on the different acronyms and the types of VISAs needed to succeed in the journey towards medical licensure in the United States.
