Pune: To ease the pressure on medical students and expand the horizon of knowledge among doctors and medical students, eMedicoz, a medical education-centric mobile application for building a professional network among medical students, doctors and healthcare professionals has been launched in India.
Dr Sumer Sethi, an entrepreneur and practising radiologist in New Delhi, invented the app to promote an unconventional way of learning in the field of medicine. “Our vision is to disrupt the way medical education content is consumed by medical graduates. This app has been developed in a concept of blended learning, wherein the courses can be live streamed and will be available through recorded videos followed by tests,” said Dr Sethi.
Medical students can get insightful knowledge and discuss cases and questions on different fora through this online space.
Budding doctors can get an idea of the latest technological developments in the field of medicine. “The gap between access to medical and healthcare knowledge needs to be bridged in order to provide uniform learning experience and similar kinds of information to doctors, medical students and healthcare experts worldwide. No matter where you may be or who you may be, medical professionals and students have the right to obtain even and equal education,” said Dr Sethi.
