We envision a world of secure and flourishing human life.
Pressing global challenges, such as poverty, conflict, and pandemics, that cause suffering and loss of life, lack skilled and talented people working on them. Many medical doctors are driven by a desire to alleviate suffering and protect life. The current medical system predominantly steers them towards traditional career paths such as clinical practice, teaching, and research, overlooking the potential for more impactful pathways.
Our organisation aims to bridge this gap by educating doctors and medical students about how they can use their skills and experience to effectively help solve some of the world’s most pressing problems. We empower them to do so by fostering a community, building knowledge and providing career support, as well as connecting them to relevant organisations, mentors and resources.
