Medic Footprints is an independent social impact business leveraging the talent of doctors through connections with diverse career opportunities and wellbeing support.
The company has embarked on a crowdfunding campaign via Kickstarter to build the world’s first platform focusing on individual wellbeing as a core part of the career and recruitment journey, facilitated by machine learning and AI.
The organisation which already has over 11,000 subscribers aims to raise a minimum of £40,000 in a bid to build the first iteration of the platform that will help ambitious medical professionals make exciting career transitions, and leverage the talent of doctors by raising awareness of the diverse career opportunities open to them.
Medic Footprints was founded by school friends Sara Sabin and London-based Doctor Abeyna Jones back in 2014. The organisation has since grown to work with a diverse range of clients from start-ups to international corporates such as Virgin Limited Edition, Deloitte, Imperial Health College Partners, Roche, Doctify and Babylon Health
Dr. Abeyna Jones, Co-Founder and Medical Director of Medic Footprints said,
“We have already developed a robust business model and now, with crowdfunding support, our plans are to grow the business with more subscribers, more wellbeing services for doctors, and of course new and innovative products.
“We aim to help doctors transform their own lives and realise there are opportunities for them if they no longer want to work full time in conventional medicine. If they’re unhappy, they could suffer from stress and then they’re more likely to make mistakes, which impacts on patient care. I know people who have left medicine, developed new skills and later returned. They have successfully been able to bring skills they’ve learned in other sectors to for the benefit of healthcare. Many are also excelling with developing their own health tech startups which are focused on improving the patient experience. Most importantly they are healthier and happier doing it.”
Medic Footprints is a well-known brand amongst the medical profession in the UK, with a subscriber base extending globally to other countries such as US, Australia, South Africa, Malaysia and India.
For everyone who contributes £10+ there will be a range of exciting rewards for medics, non-medics and businesses including a discounted subscription to the new platform, sponsorship of wellbeing material and access to health and wellbeing business advisory.
Crowdfunding closes on 12 November 2018.
