PM&DC Secures 10-Year WFME Accreditation

The Pakistan Medical & Dental Council (PM&DC) has been granted accreditation by the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME), affirming its unwavering dedication to upholding the highest standards of medical education within Pakistan. This distinguished recognition, awarded for a duration of 10 years, marks a significant milestone for PM&DC and the nation's medical education sector.

With PM&DC now holding WFME accreditation, all Pakistani students gain eligibility to apply for ECFMG and USMLE exams. This milestone enables Pakistan's medical graduates to pursue postgraduate training and professional practice in countries like the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, where WFME recognition is mandatory.
