Default The use of USMLE throughout the world

The only country in the world that recognizes USMLE exams officially is New Zealand.
Check this page and click on the drop down menu to see the list of approved exams in New Zealand.

Canada does not accept USMLE results but it will allow to practice if you have the American Board. So ECFMG and USMLE has nothing to do with that.

Certain Gulf countries such as Saudia Arabia and United Arab Emirates may recognize your scores but not officially.

Australia uses the ECFMG to check on their international applicants (verification of credentials) but they don't recognize USMLE or ECFMG.

In Canada they take in consideration the results of USMLE, even in official application form there is a special section for USMLE results but overall it varies from province to province...
