Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Elahi studied in the West Indies as a foreign medical student. Through his time spent in medical school and post-graduate programs, he was able to identify key factors lacking in the clinical education industry. He provided a unique insight into the challenges faced by many of his peers and mentors which included students struggling to get placed into clinical rotations. He also noted that institutions/ clinics struggled to fill their clinical rotations leading to an inability to grow their business. There is no denying there is a lack of reach in healthcare.
With so much to focus on for medical professionals, we first had to tackle the current model that exists for clinical rotations. Globally, M3 and M4 students and graduates are at the mercy of their university, personal network, or an agency to find and source rotations. This model limits students and graduates from having a wide variety of doctors and nurse practitioners to choose from for their clinical rotations. On the flip side, medical professionals have difficulty finding adequate amounts of quality students and graduates to fill their clinic rotation. These are just a few of the challenges faced by the medical education industry.
