A characteristic of Medical Education across the European Union (EU) is a complete lack of harmonisation: Structures, standards, and content of medical education programmes are not consistent. The transparency and comparability of qualifications are limited and even the titles conferred vary. This is clearly at cross-purposes with the stated – and lived – goal of mobility.

The MEDINE2 Thematic Network in Medical Education in Europe ( is funded from 10/2009 until 3/2013. It builds on the work of the MEDINE Network, 2004-2007 [1], [2]. About 95 medical faculties and medical universities from all EU countries have joined forces to make the outcomes of European medical education more comparable and to fit contemporary needs. The project is organized in 7 development work-packages:

MEDINElingua: web-based resources to support the learning of medical terminology
Toolkit to promote openness and mobility in medical education and training in Europe: proper implementation of ECTS in the life long learning in medicine
Tuning Process for medical education: set of products to enable individual medical schools to evaluate their learning outcomes against the Tuning framework
Tuning 1st cycle degrees in medicine: using Tuning methodology, an agreed set of learning outcomes/competences for 1st cycle Bachelor degrees in medicine will be generated
Curriculum trends in medical education in Europe in the 21st century: positions, aspirations and actions of European medical schools will be ascertained
Integration of the Bologna Process within medical schools in Bologna countries: can the Bologna Process be integrated with desired curriculum developments and can it serve as a basis for the implementation of these trends in medical education
Integration of the research component in European medical education: clarify and promote the integration of research in the medical curriculum with a focus on the 3rd cycle

Preliminary results from several work-packages will be presented.
