Following the adoption of the new reference document PROFILES for the Swiss medical education programs, the CIMS/SMIFK mandated a Swiss Working Group for PROFILES implementation. This group proposed guiding principles based on the literature in medical education and the experience of other centers, summarized in this Guide. It is intended for medical schools members in charge of implementing PROFILES and for professional educators, teachers, students or administrative staffs involved or interested in the process.
