Many new medical programs have been established during the last 20 years, and this trend seems set to continue as the health care needs of the world’s populations become more complex and demand increases for more physicians to provide the necessary health care. In this paper, we address how best to establish a new medical school, based on our experiences in new ventures in several countries. Success requires a combination of boldness of vision, support from many stakeholder groups, adequate financial and human resources, educational expertise, confidence, patience, and persistence.
