The Union Health Ministry informed that WFME accreditation will enable Indian medical graduates to pursue post-graduation and practice in other countries, where it is required. This recognition is required in America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The ministry says this will give international recognition to Indian medical colleges and professionals. It will also promote quality culture among medical teachers and institutions. With the recognition of NMC by the organization, all Indian students become eligible to apply for overseas medical education and the United States Medical Licensing Examination. Dr. Yogendra Malik, member of the Ethics and Medical Registration Board in NMC, said that getting the recognition is a huge success.
This recognition will provide our students with the opportunity to pursue their careers anywhere in the world. Also, having globally recognized standards will also make India an attractive destination for international students. He informed that the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) is a global organization dedicated to promoting the quality of medical education across the world. The accreditation provided by this organization plays a vital role in ensuring that any medical institution meets and maintains the highest international standards of education and training.
