Our Story

Expanding Knowledge. Improving Health.

Our story began in 2016 when a group of passionate educators at Stanford Medicine made a commitment to extend our deep expertise in education and research to communities across the world. Building on our experience with creating compelling and credible e-learning experiences, we sought to bring this expertise to solve some of the world’s most challenging health issues. The digital revolution has enabled us to reach learners in the most remote areas of the world and equip them with basic health knowledge that can save and improve lives.

We knew that our ability to cause transformative change would only be possible if we work together with collaborators who share this vision. The Digital Medic initiative was born out of this shared vision, and we have since formalized our commitment to expanding knowledge and improving health worldwide.

We work with local nongovernmental organizations, academic institutions, and government agencies to create engaging, easily adaptable health education content. We focus on high-need health issues affecting communities around the world. 

Our learning design and evaluation teams in California and Cape Town work together to create content for frontline health workers and the populations they serve. We collaborate with local stakeholders who disseminate the content, with the community members who consume it, and with researchers who help us improve and scale our impact.
