I’m Lewis Potter, a GP trainee and the founder of Geeky Medics, an online medical education platform. I started this project 9 years ago, back when I was a fourth-year medical student frustrated that online medical education was a bit rubbish. I certainly didn’t anticipate that I’d still be working on my little blog all these years later, but I’m really glad to be here.
Lots of things have changed since Geeky Medics started, but my personal favourite has been the development of a vibrant, diverse, global community of medical students, doctors, nurses, paramedics, physician associates, dentists, pharmacists, midwives and other healthcare professionals. The Geeky Medics community is the reason I feel so passionate about this project, so thanks for being here.
Over time we’ve also developed a team of brilliant educators, both students and qualified health professionals, who are helping to expand the reach and impact of Geeky Medics. We’ve now had over 200 million views of our content from an audience spanning more than 150 countries, which is something I’m really proud of.
If you’re passionate about educating the next generation of healthcare workers on a global scale then I’d love to hear from you. You can contact me at [email protected].
P.S. My Mum recently discovered one of my terrible initial sketches of the original Geeky Medics website design, so I thought I’d immortalise it here.
