World Directory of Medical Schools
It is the mission of the World Directory of Medical Schools to list all of the medical schools in the world, with accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive information on each school.

The World Directory of Medical Schools has been developed through a partnership between the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) and the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the University of Copenhagen.

The World Directory provides a comprehensive compilation of the information previously contained in the IMED and Avicenna directories.
