This meeting represented the first consultation with the group of medical education experts. The group comprised individuals with knowledge and experience relevant to the transformative scale up of medical education. The experts will have a vital role to play in developing the research methodology, contributing to the generation and assessment of the evidence, and reviewing drafts of the resulting recommendations.

The specific objectives of the first meeting were to: introduce the expert group to the Medical and Nursing Partnership Initiative and the process for development of WHO global recommendations; review some of the early findings that are emerging from the ongoing knowledge gathering effort; and begin to map out a framework for the recommendations through the identification of key areas of intervention.
