Partnership ABEM CFM

The Conselho Federal de Medicina – CFM (Brazilian Federal Council of Medicine) and the Associação Brasileira de Educação Médica – Abem (Brazilian Association of Medical Education), reaffirming their commitment to ethical professional practice and quality of education, are united to develop and implement the Sistema de Acreditação de Escolas Médicas no Brasil – Saeme (Accreditation System for Medical Schools in Brazil).

The proposal, inspired by the successful experience of the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) - an official accreditation process for medical schools in the United States and Canada - is complementary to the National Higher Education Assessment System (SINAES).Medical School participation is voluntary.
