World Directory of Medical Schools Subscription Service Is Now Available

Posted on Categories World Directory of Medical Schools

In April 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 March 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.

We are now pleased to announce the launch of the World Directory Subscription Service. This service allows regulatory authorities, researchers, and other interested subscribers access to download a wealth of information from the World Directory for an annual fee. Available information includes medical schools’ years of operation, academic affiliations, and curriculum details. Data files are available for download in CSV or XML format and are updated daily.
