In 2011, the first regionalized medical program (RMP) started in Sweden. 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. A survey was distributed to teachers and administrators. Early findings indicate that the use of digital technologies began at a small scale, but there is potential for increased development. It is concluded that although teachers and administrators have a limited experience of distance education, the faculty has been able to create a feeling of being prepared.
