Co-Founder and CEO Madjid Salimi spoke to us about how AMBOSS provides a digital resource for doctors to help them make improved clinical decisions, and thereby improve patient outcomes.

In 2012, a group of young residents became dissatisfied with the limitations of the traditional system of medical education. Due to the abundance of various resources that were available, more time was spent investigating topics rather than actually learning them. They decided to take matters into their own hands and thus AMBOSS was born.

One year later, 95 per cent of future doctors in Germany studying for their final examinations were using AMBOSS. The AMBOSS team eventually came to the conclusion that this information overload was having an effect not only on medical students right before their exam but also on physicians, and not only in Germany but all across the world.

To help doctors navigate a vast amount of medical knowledge to find the right information at the right time, AMBOSS aims to distill the overflow of information down and make it applicable to patient care.

In our interview with Co-Founder and CEO Madjid Salimi, we further explore the origin story of the platform and also dive into how technology’s widespread impact in healthcare is critical, especially when it comes to providing educational resources in the present day and age for medical professionals.
