Enhancing the quality of medical education worldwide
The WFME Recognition Programme evaluates agencies against internationally-accepted criteria for accreditation. Recognition Status is the quality measure which confers the understanding that the quality of medical education in accredited schools is to an appropriate and rigorous standard.
WFME publishes international best practice Global Standards for Quality Improvement of Medical Education, covering Basic (Undergraduate) Medical Education (BME); Postgraduate Medical Education (PME); and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of Medical Doctors.
The World Directory is a freely accessible directory of the world's undergraduate (basic) medical education programs. It contains information for over 2,900 schools, both operational and historical, including curriculum and enrolment details.
The World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) is pleased to announce the launch of its new website and updated logo. We record our thanks to THS for the design of both.
