Abstract

High quality in medical education is a prerequisite for quality in health care delivery. The increasing global mobility of patients and health care personnel further underlines the need for quality assurance of medical education. But most importantly, accreditation should stimulate quality development.

To be internationally trustworthy, medical education institutions should undergo accreditation by internationally recognized accrediting bodies. The World Federation for Medical Education offer global standards and guidelines for quality development as well as an internationally established and transparent process for recognition of accrediting organisations. This will promote recognition of medical education institutions worldwide and universal acceptance of diplomas issued from those institutions.
