WFME and the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) are pleased to announce an important milestone in their collaboration to develop the World Directory of Medical Schools. The World Directory is now available at www.wdoms.org. This new resource, developed in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the University of Copenhagen, 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.
