    As part of our goal to build information resources on medical education worldwide, FAIMER is developing a directory of international organizations that recognize, authorize, certify, or accredit medical schools and/or medical education programs. These organizations are often responsible for the establishment of national standards.

    DORA is a developing resource. Although we believe this information to be accurate, it does not encompass all organizations that have responsibilities related to approving medical schools and/or medical education programs. Accreditation or recognition of a school by an organization listed below does not automatically imply that the school will be listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools or that graduates of the school are currently eligible for ECFMG Certification. FAIMER is not an accrediting agency.

    Additionally, the listing of an accrediting agency in DORA does not indicate that the agency is recognized by the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) Programme for Recognition of Accrediting Agencies. Agencies with WFME Recognition Status are identified with an asterisk (*).

    The inclusion of an accrediting agency in DORA, or recognition of the agency by WFME, does not imply that all medical schools in this country are currently accredited by the agency. Interested individuals should contact the agency directly regarding the accreditation status of specific medical schools.

    For more information about a country’s recognizing/accrediting organization(s), such as duration and levels of accreditation, and evaluation standards and processes, click on that country's name below. To comment on an entry or to suggest additions, contact FAIMER at research@faimer.org.
