MEU India was started in 2007 November. At that time, the number of participants was very low and it was a continuation of a FAIMER project I was working on titled ‘Electronic Classroom in Undergraduate Teaching’. It was made using a yahoo group, through various medical education conferences people joined it and many discussions took place in a large number of journal clubs. News about medical conferences and activities in medical science were discussed thus creating a network of medical educators, which went on expanding and expanding from the 150 members in the beginning to 20,000 health professional teachers over the years. This led to the birth of a national mastermind, which is on its way to working collaboratively towards improving our medical education system and making possible the continuous dissemination of information and a bottom-up spiralling of ideas to the top most.
