The International Medical Education Directory (IMED) is a free web-based resource for accurate and up-to-date information about international medical schools that are recognized by the appropriate government agency in the countries where they are located. FAIMER is not an accrediting agency. Listing of a medical school in IMED does not denote recognition, accreditation, or endorsement by FAIMER.
A medical school is added to IMED after FAIMER receives confirmation from the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education, or other appropriate agency that the Ministry or agency has recognized that school. FAIMER also updates IMED as new information about medical schools is received from these agencies.
The following information is available in IMED:
You may search for schools in IMED by geographic region, country, name of the school, or name of the city where the school is located. Detailed search instructions are provided. Access to IMED in a downloadable format is also available through the IMED Subscription Service.
