Criteria for Acceptable Primary Medical Qualification (PMQ)

Hello everyone!

How do I check if my primary medical qualification is acceptable in the UK? Is it enough that a medical institution is listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools, are there other considerations?

Hi! :hugs:
I think that if your medical school is in the World Directory of Medical Schools it’s enough to get your primary medical qualification accepted. It means that the medical school checks all the GMC’s criteria.
Also, if you can’t find it on the World Directory of Medical Schools, there are some exceptions that GMC has.
I’ve found this link that maybe will help.
