NEW DELHI: The National Medical Commission (NMC) has been awarded the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) recognition status today. The NMC has received the WFME status for a tenure of 10 years.
The NMC had applied for the WFME recognition in August 2022. After receiving the WFME recognition, the Indian medical graduates studying in NMC approved medical colleges will be eligible to appear for the United States Medical Licentiate Examination (USMLE) for postgraduate training.
“ The National Medical Commission (NMC), India, is proud to announce its momentous achievement of being awarded the coveted World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) Recognition Status for a remarkable tenure of 10 years. This prestigious recognition is a testament to NMC’s unwavering commitment to the highest standards in medical education and accreditation” an official statement from the commission read.
The WFME will also be presenting an official award letter and a recognition certificate to the NMC.
The NMC has extended gratitude to WFME for the recognition. Yogender Malik, member of the ethics and medical registration board and head media division at NMC said, “WFME’s recognition underscores that the quality of medical education in India adheres to global standards. This accolade empowers our students with the opportunity to pursue their careers anywhere in the world, while also making India an attractive destination for international students due to our globally recognized standards.”
WFME is an international organisation working in partnership with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Medical Association. Established in 1972, WFME had been accrediting medical colleges independently. Now, it has decided that it will only recognise an accreditation agency and approvals granted by this agency will automatically lead to WFME accreditation for an institution.
