    They should definitely build a new hospital first and only after that think about building another medical school. This is very stupid, to make more doctors than you have patients. First they should think about the needs of people and then ask themselves if they can satisfy them, not just do something because they think more doctors would be a good thing.

    With the shortage of doctors many schools are increasing their quota. My school in Turkey did the same thing. The ministry of health requested for them to output more doctors.
    The results are not the best, class size has increased and hospital capacity for residents and doctors has decreased. Thankfully they are in the process of building a whole new medical center. It will be done by the time i start doing my rotations :).

    I think the process should be very simple before you should not intake more students than your hospital/school can handle.
