Global standards in basic medical education

Hassan, M.Ahmed, Abdelbagi Elzien.

Abstract
Background: The World Federation of Medical Education (WFME) has defined standards to outline minimum requirements for medical education (ME). The standards are divided into two levels, basic standards which must be fulfilled by all medical institutions and standards for quality development which serve as an incentive for development. The school of medicine of the Academy of Medical Sciences & Technology (AMST), Sudan, conducted self evaluation using WFME standards to prepare the school for accreditation and to test whether the standards are attainable and practical for medical schools in developing countries.
Methods: AMST committee for self evaluation was established to collect data by standard questionnaires prepared by three official bodies responsible for medical education & health in the Sudan. Questionnaires are based on WFME standards addressing 9 areas and 36 sub areas.
Results: AMST school of Medicine attained 95% of basic standards and 85% of quality development. Advantages and disadvantages were identified. New standard on quality development is suggested. Benefits from applying the WFME standards for self evaluation include:
Staff members get to know their own school's qualities.
We all develop knowledge and experience in the accreditation
process
We established a systematic approach to school evaluation.
WFME standards increase staff satisfaction on school
performance.
The process identified areas of strength and weakness which are scheduled for further action.
Conclusion: WFME standards are considered an essential mean for achieving the highest standards of medical education. They are found practical & attainable by our school.

Key words: global standards, accreditation, students; staff, educational programme, curricullum
