Supporting Iraqi National Council for Accreditation of Medical Colleges and Training a new cadre of Academic Assessors

This assignment was held between the 3rd and 7th of July 2018 with the aim of supporting the Iraqi National Council for Accreditation of Medical Colleges (NCAMC) and preparing for the process of accrediting all medical colleges in Iraq.

Four Terms of Reference (objectives) were identified to achieve this aim, namely:

1. Assess the rationale and process followed for accrediting medical colleges in Iraq;
2. Share regional and global good practice and incorporate lessons learnt that suit the 
Iraqi context;
3. Review and finalise the draft guidelines for the NCAMC;
4. Intensive training sessions for selected assessors with a certification of workshop attendance for those who pass a post-workshop test. 

In fulfilling these objectives, the Imperial College London WHO Collaborating Centre for Training and Education (WHOCC) was selected through a tendering process. The WHOCC was involved through its leadership in the development of the standards of undergraduate medical education and the formation of the National Committee of Accreditation of Medical Colleges. In particular, we worked closely with and admired the WHO inputs into this complex developmental process through two workshops held in 2012 and 2016 in Amman, Jordan. Imperial College WHO Collaborating Centre team members took part in these two workshops including the editing of the National Standards for Medical Education.
