Abstract [en]

In 2011, the first regionalized medical program (RMP) started in Sweden. The Swedish RMP means that students are distributed in groups while doing their five clinical clerkship semesters. To enable the medical students' theoretical studies when being regionalized, digital technologies are used for educational and administrational purposes. This paper explores medical teachers' and administrators' understanding of faculty preparations, their own preparedness and expectations related to the implementation of the RMP supported by digital technologies. A survey was distributed to teachers and administrators before the first regionalized semester was conducted. Findings indicate that the use of digital technologies began at a small scale, but that there is potential for increased development. It is concluded that although teachers and administrators have limited experience of distance education, the faculty has been able to create a feeling of being prepared.
