MEDigi — Digitalisation and harmonisation of teaching in medical fields (record no. OKM/270/523/2017) is a key project of the Ministry of Education and Culture, to which the ministry has granted special funding in the amount of EUR 3.2 million. The project was conducted between 1 April 2018 and 31 December 2021 as cooperation of the medical faculties at the universities of Helsinki, Eastern Finland, Oulu, Tampere and Turku.

The objective of the project has been to harmonise and modernise education in medical fields in Finland by utilising digitalisation in undergraduate medical and dentistry teaching. At the beginning of the project, six sub-objectives were set. Once the project was launched, the need for a seventh sub-objective was identified, which concerned legal documents and various guidelines for the creation of national teaching, study materials and network cooperation.
