Abstract

Objective: To borrow a public health concept, there has been a global outbreak, perhaps a pandemic, of new medical schools during the last 20 years, resulting in a diverse range of programs in many different contexts. The question posed was: how should the task of establishing a new medical program be approached in 2018?

Methods: Based on involvement with several new medical programs, this paper presents a highly idealistic commentary on what a new medical program might look like. The paper adopts the organizational structure of the World Federation of Medical Education Basic Medical Education standards as a scaffold, because accreditation both locally and globally is intended.

Results: The program design reflects both progress in learning technology and the challenges faced in a changing world, where disruption appears inevitable, and innovation may be necessary to produce the medical graduates needed to improve the health status of an expanding, ageing and ailing global population.Conclusion: The program model described represents a combination of educational design, emerging technology and a focus on future health care needs.
