The World Directory of Medical Schools (WDOMS) is a free, searchable directory of the world’s undergraduate (basic) medical education programmes.
It contains information for over 3,700 schools, both operational and historical. Each record highlights available school details including start year, school type, operational status, programme details and contact information.
A listing in the World Directory confirms that the medical school exists, but it does not denote recognition, accreditation, or endorsement by the World Directory, WFME, FAIMER or any of the sponsoring organisations unless expressly stated.
The World Directory is freely available on the website. For organisations wishing access to the database, there is an annual subscription fee for access to the downloadable database. All downloaded information is publicly available and searchable. Data files are available for download in CSV or XML format.
Inclusion in the World Directory
The Directory lists all medical schools providing a complete or full programme of instruction leading to a basic medical qualification, one that permits the holder to obtain a license to practice as a medical doctor.
Before an eligible medical school can be included in this directory, the World Directory team must confirm the school’s operational status and recognition from an appropriate government agency or ministry.
