A note from the Co-founder

When I started Meducation with Alastair back in 2008, the digital world was a very different place. YouTube had only launched in the UK the previous year, Facebook had 5% of it's current user base, and good content was still hard to find online. In the last 7 years, it would not be an understatement to say we have witnessed a digital content revolution. Incredibly high-quality educational material is now ubiquitous and the problem domain that students encounter has shifted from an unavailability of good content, to such a volume of content that it's now extremely difficult to find the needle you need in the haystack.

Meducation's focus has shifted over the years in response to this. Initially a place for medics to upload their content, it has now evolved into a curation and collation platform, where we make sure the right content gets to the right person. We are experts in data science, artificial intelligence and library science, and we use these skills to scour the internet, finding, understanding, categorising and organising the medical web so that students and professionals can quickly and easily find the resources they need to take the next steps in their learning journeys.

We are passionate about creating order out of chaos, finding innovative solutions to complex problems, and helping others. The Internet is still young and evolving at a furious rate - our job is to provide a place where medics can quickly and efficiently make the most of the huge amount of effort that is going into understanding and explaining medicine. With over 158,000 members using our services, we know we're doing something right!
