26 September 2016, in Vienna / Austria
At the kick-off meeting, AMSE together with European accreditation agencies from different countries discussed how:
- common standards for medical education and delivering institutions (medical school, hospitals, etc.) in Europe can be achieved;
- these standards can be a basis for accreditation;
- accreditation agencies using these standards can be identified and recognised;
- these standards can be proposed to the European Parliament as a basis for the quality assurance in medicine in Europe.
At the end of the meeting, all participants agreed that this approach is worthwhile to continue and agreed to take further steps. Details will follow soon.
