Dear Dr. Swartz, Anna, and Sandy,

Hey guys……..finally good news!!!!

Just received my ECFMG certificate. All steps concluded!! Now I’ll start looking for a spot in the Internal Medicine programs for 2007.

Thank you so much for your collaboration in the conclusion of this last step. Every word that you advised me was crucial to this accomplishment as well as for my professional and personnel life. Despite the “couple yawnings” during our talks, I guess I picked up the most of the tips you guys gave me.

I’ll let you know about this next step that will make me able to apply in real life all those skills and others that will come up!!!

Thank you again for everything Anna, Sandy and Dr. Swartz.

Rafael Oliveira, M.D.Brazil
