As population continues to grow at a rapid pace and more enter the college age band width globally, it is the private sector that is best positioned to deliver on the education front. In some countries like Malaysia & India different organizations have taken different approaches but with the same objective: capacity building that is tied to economic development. Objectives;1)How do new institutions address scale and quality capacity building?2)Explore challenges and solutions based on the experiences in these markets.3)How sustainable are these and other models in light of the global demand in terms of access to medical education?
