Steps To Endorsement
Attend an Endorsement Office Hour where FAIMH will confirm your best-fit Endorsement® Category.
After FAIMH has confirmed your best-fit Endorsement® Category, FAIMH will email you our upcoming Endorsement® Cohorts with links to reserve your spot to apply. Each cohort will be limited and registration will close once a cohort reaches its max.
On the date your Cohort starts, you will be given access to register in EASy (FAIMH’s secure web-based Endorsement® application software) via email.
After you complete your EASy registration, you will receive an email notification from the Endorsement Coordinator regarding whether your application has been accepted.
Complete Your Application
You will receive your EASy login credentials via email.
Additionally, you will be assigned an Endorsement® Advisor who will guide you through your Endorsement® Application. EASy has in-system messaging and help tools that allows you to ask questions along the way.
Complete your application within your 90-day timeframe. This tends to be ample time, as it generally takes IFA/IFS applicants 2-3 hours, and takes approximately 3-5 hours for IIMHS and IMHM Applicants.
Your application will undergo a 2-tier review by FAIMH’s Endorsement® Reviewing Team:
IFA and IFS are notified of the status of their Endorsement® after the reviewing process is complete.
IMHS and IMHM (Clinical, Policy, and Research/Faculty) Applications are reviewed and notified regarding eligibility to sit for the Endorsement® Exam. IMHS and IMHM Applicants will also need to successfully pass the Endorsement® Exam.
