An expert group consisting of senior experts in the field of medical education reviewed existing educational processes in the institutes in countries of the South-East Asia Region and developed regional guidelines to ensure quality assurance in undergraduate medical education. Tools were also developed for assessment and audit for institutional quality assurance mechanisms. The regional guideline is meant to standardize the mechanism in the regional institutions, and was endorsed by the Network of Medical Councils of the South-East Asia Region. It is recommended that countries will develop strategic plans to implement the regional guidelines in their institutions.
