FAIMER strives to be the single best source of data on international medical schools and their graduates. To this end, we have developed the following resources:
Directory of Organizations that Recognize/Accredit Medical Schools (DORA)
As part of our goal to build information resources on medical education worldwide, FAIMER is developing a directory of international organizations that recognize, authorize, or certify medical schools and/or medical education programs. These organizations are often responsible for the establishment of national standards for medical education and the recognition of medical schools in their countries.
Master’s Programs and Ph.D. Programs in Health Professions Education
FAIMER has developed directories of both Master’s programs and Ph.D. programs in health professions education around the world. The directories provide detailed information about a variety of international programs in health professions education. In an effort to track the increasing number of programs available in this growing field, FAIMER will continue to add to these directories as new information is received.
World Directory of Medical Schools
In 2014, FAIMER and the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) announced the launch of the World Directory of Medical Schools. This new resource is the result of a 2012 agreement to merge the organizations’ respective directories—FAIMER’s International Medical Education Directory (IMED) and WFME’s Avicenna Directory—to produce a single comprehensive resource on undergraduate medical education worldwide.
