World Federation for Medical Education
The mission of WFME is to enhance the quality of medical education world-wide, and to promote the highest standards in medical education.
This mission is met through the development of standards in medical education, by the promotion of accreditation of medical schools, with the development of databases on medical education, through projects on the future of medicine and medical education, and through other publications and partnerships.
WFME works in partnership with its six Regional Associations for Medical Education, with global professional and international organisations including the World Health Organization and the World Medical Association, with WFME’s associate members, and with medical schools world-wide.
The purpose of WFME in promoting better medical education is to improve health care for all mankind.
WFME’s activities cover all stages of medical education, from basic (undergraduate) medical education, through postgraduate medical education - including vocational training, specialist training, and research doctoral education - and continuing medical education and the continuing professional development of medical doctors.
WFME is pleased to be working with the Association of Medical Education in the Eastern Mediterranean Region in organising the AMEEMR Conference 2015.
The conference is to be held at the Maritime Jolie Ville Sharm El Sheikh International Congress Center, Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
The conference flyer can be viewed here.
WFME is pleased to announce that its Central Office will move to Ferney-Voltaire, France, at the start of February 2015. This location is particularly practical for the work of WFME, being immediately next to the offices of the World Medical Association and very close to the headquarters of WHO, as well as being close to other important partners of WFME.
WFME is particularly grateful to the World Medical Association for their support in enabling this move.
