As part of actualization of this programme, MCI through its academic committee has structured basic course on medical education technology to be conducted institutionally by medical education unit of each medical college. Mid-level courses are to be conducted by 11 nodal centres that MCI has identified in different regions of the country and the apical course to be conducted by the apical centre in the medical council itself.

The entire programme is articulated for 'training of trainers' so as to ensure transformation of an 'efficient' teacher into an 'effective' teacher as an exercise aiming at 'capacity building of the capacity builders'. The Council has also undertaken the exercise of rationalization of the minimum requirements for starting of medical colleges and also their equitable geographical location, so that the aspirations of all the parts of the country are equitable met.
