    Extracts from the site:


    The International Medical Education Directory (IMED) provides an accurate and up-to-date resource of information about international medical schools that are recognized by the appropriate government agency in the countries where the medical schools are located. The agency responsible for this recognition in most countries is the Ministry of Health. Medical schools that are recognized by the appropriate agencies in their respective countries are listed in the International Medical Education Directory.
    A medical school is listed in IMED after FAIMER receives confirmation from the Ministry of Health or other appropriate agency that the medical school is recognized by the Ministry or other agency. FAIMER also updates the International Medical Education Directory as information about medical schools is received from Ministries of Health or other appropriate agencies.


    So isnt it that they copy pasted the list of pmdc approved colleges?
    thats the only criteria they have: being approved by the relevant local authorities

    You're basically right about that except that IMED sometimes has a more up-to-date site than PM&DC does so it doesn't hurt to check both.

    DMC and DIMC are the same institutions...

    Dow International Medical College (DIMC) and Dow Medical College (DMC) are the same institutions....it's just that DIMC is an addition to DMC; just another building and campus for International students; who basically one day plan to go back to their nationals for practice. According to DMC, the addition was created especially for International students so they will not have any problem adjusting (they will have problems adjusting...mark my words!) According to their statement international students will have better facilities and environment..."Separate hostels with A/C and other facilities are available for boys and girls, with full security." I don't know if this is true or not since I have not visited that campus myself...now it makes sense that since DMC is US approved so obviously DIMC is approved as well.

    This question was briefly answered in a different thread but since you probably didn't searched around before asking, I am posting it here with a few words added and edited. Now this is what I know...if you are not satisfied you can always contact the institution directly and ask them this question, okay so hope this helps

    hey junnat thanx a lot 4 ur detailed reply.. actually i did a bit of search in other threadz az vel but den again everywhere either ppl ver saying dat DIMC is a part of DMC (da same thing u just said) or dey dint even know abt it.. and abt d idea of calling dem.. well itz very difficult 2 contact sum1 of high authority in dow az dey all r too bzy in admission processes deez dayz n do not repond properly to my calls or even visits..
    also.. wen DIMC (altho being a part of DMC) iz separately recognized by PMDC, shudnt it b separately approved 4 USMLE az vel? even SMC is a part of DUHS now but still it iz separately recognized by PMDC n approved 4 USMLE..
    actually im not an international student.. i liv in khi.. n DIMC duz hav sum seats 4 d local studentz az vel.. n since i cudnt get in2 dow/smc.. da only option i hav left iz DIMC.. but another prob wid DIMC iz dat dey dont have a hospital yet (altho dey say in da prospectus dat dey hav a small 250 bedded hospital n dey'll upgrade it to 500 bedded one widin 2 yrz) but i visited da campus recently n found no hospital over dere.. altho da campus itself iz really nice.. but i dont think itz wise enough 2 trust our paki government dat dey vil provide us wid a well established hospital widin 2 yrz so dat v can do our clinicalz properly wen v cum in da 3rd yr of MBBS..
    after evaluating all da pointz.. im a bit confused b/w zmu (ziauddin medical university) and DIMC.. plz tel me which institution wud b better 4 me? if i wish to appear in USMLE during my mbbs.. ??

    The answer was given previously:

    All the schools which are USMLE approved are listed above. Any school approved by the US is also approved for USMLE.

    As far as transferring from a Pakistani medical college to a US one, it is generally not possible to transfer due to the huge difference in timing of curriculum, insane competitiveness of US schools, and the fact that all US medical schools require completion of a bachelors degree prior to gaining admission.

    Until FAIMER lists it on their site as being fully accredited we don't list it on our site as being approved as a school from where you can graduate and be eligible to take the United States board exams (USMLEs).

    You can contact FAIMER to ask whether the school will be approved in the near future or not. This may also depend on whether Pakistan's Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education have communicated their desire to see this school be approved and put on the list.

    If it is not on the FAIMER list (and subsequently not on our list) I would not assume that you will be able to graduate from there and be able to practice in the US.

    23. I never took physics/chemistry/biology! Can I still get into a medical school in Pakistan?
    No, you cannot. You must have completed one year of all three subjects prior to entering medical school in Pakistan. If you have not taken these courses you will have to take those first.




    i have taken these in high school do i have to take them again at the college level

    No you don't, and please stop posting in the wrong thread. This is a thread for questions regarding pakistani med schools which are or aren't approved by the US.

    Wah Medical College and Dow International Medical College have been added by FAIMER and graduates from these institutions are now eligible for taking the USMLE exam needed to practice in the United States.

    Services Institute of Medical Sciences (SIMS) and Sheikh Zayed Medical College are not approved by FAIMER at this point in time. This may change in the future.

    U surely mean King Edward Medical College, Lahore (most commonly known as KE). Its listed and falls under the government institutions. Most people give it their first preference. Only the highest scorers goes there!
