Description:

Background: With the explosion of new medical schools around the world, the quality assurance process known as accreditation becomes more and more important. Equally important are processes to ensure that a country’s accreditation system meets international standards of excellence. In order to ensure that a country’s accreditation agency meets international standards, the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) and the National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA) have established processes to ensure the quality of a country’s accreditation agency and confer “recognition” status.

Aim of webinar: This webinar will explain the basics of accreditation and experts from NCFMEA, WFME, and the Foundation for the Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) will discuss the two recognition processes; one to ensure US. student access to subsidized loans and the other to maintain access to US residencies and fellowships after 2023.
