NEAQA in the process of recognition by the World Federation of Medical Education (WFME)

In January 2024, NEAQA successfully went through the preliminary application for accreditation to WFME and was found eligible, after which an agreement was reached to begin submitting the main application.

WFME accreditation of NEAQA will open new doors for medical doctors after completing integrated academic medical studies in Serbia, especially those who complete their studies after January 1, 2025 (diplomas obtained after this date will not be recognised in the USA unless national agencies for accreditation have previously completed the process of recognition in WFME). This will provide our graduates with an application to the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) and access to new opportunities for further training and a career abroad.

In the following period, NEAQA will agree on cooperation with medical faculties in Serbia and proceed with the main application through the WFME portal, after which a team of WFME experts will visit the institution subject to accreditation. Namely, according to the procedure and standards of the WFME, a medical faculty must start the accreditation procedure of the study program of integrated academic studies in medicine (360 ESPB), where the WFME, through a team of experts, supervises the course of the procedure itself.

On this occasion, NEAQA will continue to inform the public about all further steps within the International Cooperation/International Activities section.
