The mission of WFME is to enhance the quality of medical education world-wide, and to promote the highest standards in medical education. WFME came into existence in September 1972 at a meeting in Copenhagen, when its Constitution was signed by representatives of the Regional Associations for Medical Education, by the representative of the Director-General of the World Health Organization, by the President of the World Medical Association, and other witnesses.
The Constitution was drawn up by a WFME Planning Group which met in Mainz in April 1972 with the support of the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. The concept of WFME originated much earlier, at a meeting of medical educators in New Delhi in 1966.
The Constitution was revised in 1988, in 1994, and further amended in April 2014.
As well as being registered in England and Wales, WFME is registered in France since July 2015.
