Session abstract Medical professionals in the region are taking on a more active role in the design and delivery of medical education. In the ECSA region alone, health professionals have formed colleges and designed curricula with the aim of delivering medical education through a collegiate system. With the rapid changes taking place, it is imperative that quality assurance matters are considered and the role of these new models in general quality improvement duly examined. In this session, we question what the role of governments should be in the light of rapid changes in the delivery of medical education. We also examine how innovations are improving and contributing to changing trends in the delivery of medical education.
