It is a proud day for the National Medical Commission (NMC) as it has been granted World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) recognition. After this development, all 706 existing medical colleges in India have become WFME accredited. Moreover, the new medical colleges that will be set up in the coming 10 years will also become WFME accredited. As a part of this announcement, Indian medical graduates will now be able to practice medicine in foreign countries, as the National Medical Commission (NMC) received the WFME's recognition status for a duration of 10 years.
WFME is an international organization working in partnership with the World Health Organisation and the World Medical Association. It was established in the year 1972 and WFME has been accrediting medical colleges independently.
Now that NMC has the WFME recognition, it is for the tenure of 10 years. This benefits the Indian students and empowers them with the opportunity to pursue their career anywhere globally and also makes India an attractive destination for international students. In the words of Dr. Yogendra Malik "WFME recognition underscores that the quality of medical education in India adheres to global standards." Dr. Yogendra Malik is a member of the Ethics and Registration Board and Head of media division at NMC.
The NMC expresses deep appreciation to WFME for this honor and remains committed to advancing excellence in medical education for the benefit of all stakeholders.
