World Directory of Medical Schools

We are proud to be listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools, developed through a partnership between the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) and the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER). These organisations collaborate to identify new schools for inclusion in the directory and to update existing school records.


General Medical Council

The General Medical Council (GMC) helps protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. Visits by the GMC monitor organisations in their compliance with the standards and requirements as set out in Promoting Excellence: Standards for medical education and training.

The GMC approval process takes the form of a year by year review, from first cohort through to graduation. 

We are expecting to receive the outcome of the GMC approval process by 2022, when our first cohort will graduate. 

There can be no guarantee that this will be the outcome of the quality assurance process. However, the Queen Mary, Malta Campus programme has contingency arrangements in place with the home university programme of Queen Mary in London, so that students enrolled in the programme and who are successfully passing all assessments, will be able to complete their studies and graduate with a GMC-recognised medical qualification.
