We imagine a world where the medical profession has evolved and doctors are well
In 2017, Medworld successfully lobbied the World Medical Association to amend the Declaration of Geneva (the modern-day Hippocratic Oath) to include:
I will attend to my own health, well-being, and abilities in order to provide care of the highest standard.
Since then Medworld has continued to advocate for, educate, and work towards better health and well-being for all doctors.
Medworld Founder, Dr Sam Hazledine, is a wellbeing advocate and medical entrepreneur.
"Medicine is a collective of some of the best minds in the world, but the full power of this community is not being harnessed because we aren’t collaborating effectively.
This is not because there was not a will, but because there wasn't a way; we’re doing the best we can, but we’re hurting."
Dr Sam Hazledine
Sam's interest in doctor wellbeing began soon after he graduated medical school and noticed huge numbers of his classmates disillusioned and leaving the profession - over time he started to see the scale of the doctor wellbeing crisis and he decided to make it his life’s work.
He set up Medworld to lobby the World Medical Association to amend the Declaration of Geneva, and since then his research has focussed on how to make significant inroads to address the problem. He is bringing his work to life through Medworld; a digital platform designed to break down the silos and enable collaboration through community.
Over 200 doctors came together to provide feedback on the Medworld platform and shape its progress.
Our idea is to enable the collective intelligence of the medical profession to solve medicine’s challenges; our goal is to build a useful collaboration engine and advance the health of medicine.
It is our parents, our children, our friends, our siblings, who will ultimately benefit when we achieve our purpose and well doctors globally are practicing their best medicine.
