About ICME

International Conference on Medical Education (ICME) was launched by Riphah International University in 2009 to provide a credible platform for interaction of world renowned experts in Health Profession Education and those from developing countries aspiring to reform Health Profession Education in their countries to bring it at par with international standards. The first conference was held in Pakistan which resulted in recognition of Health Profession Education as a specialty in Medical Sciences and the compulsory establishment of Department of Medical Education in all medical colleges. Encouraged by the response ICME was then organized in other countries undergoing or planning for reforms in Health Profession Education. ICME has so far been organized biennially in Abu Dhabi, Mauritius and Istanbul (Turkey).
