Postgraduate Medical Education Project Launched

Posted on Categories data resources, health professions educationTags , ,

FAIMER’s newest data resource, the Postgraduate Medical Education (PME) Project, is now available on the FAIMER website. Developed in partnership with the European Medical Association (EMA), the PME Project is a web-based directory describing postgraduate medical education programs worldwide. It provides information, at the country level, on formal medical education and clinical training beyond the basic medical school curriculum, including the duration of studies, trainee selection processes, specialty curricula and licensing authorities, areas of specialization, and regulations regarding specialty education and licensure/certification. The PME Project is intended to be a resource for those who want to learn about postgraduate medical education internationally. It will be especially valuable to those who wish to evaluate, compare, and contrast postgraduate training programs among countries.
