Currently, accreditation within medical education is a priority on the agenda for many countries worldwide.
The World Federation for Medical Education's (WFME) launch of its first trilogy of standards in 2003 was a seminal
event in promoting accreditation within basic medical education (BME) globally. Parallel to that, WFME also actively
spearheaded a project to recognize the accrediting agencies within individual countries.
The introduction of competency-based medical education (CBME) with the two key concepts of "entrusted professional
activity" and milestones has enabled researchers to identify the relationship between patient outcomes and medical
education. Recent data driven by CBME has been used for the continuous quality improvement of trainees and training
programmes as well. The goal of accreditation has shifted from the single purpose of quality assurance to balancing
quality assurance and quality improvement. Even though there are a plethora of types of postgraduate medical education
(PGME), it may be possible to accredit resident programmes on a global scale by adopting the concept of CBME. In addition,
the alignment of the accreditation for BME and PGME, which center on competency, will be achievable.
This argument may extend the possibility of measuring the outcomes of the accreditation itself against patient outcomes
as well. Therefore, evidence of the advantages of costly and labor-consuming accreditation processes will be available
in the near future and quality improvement will be the driving force of the accreditation process.
