This talk will describe the process of implementing a medical education partnership and the challenges that are commonly encountered. Two partnerships will be used as examples: a partnership with internal medicine trainees in Georgetown, Guyana and a partnership with family physicians and medical trainees in Gondar, Ethiopia.
