Inspiring the next generation of health professionsals
Generation Medics was selected for the first cohort of the We in Social Tech accelerator supported by Deutsche Bank’s Made for Good programme.
The company is a multi-award-winning non-profit, founded to widen access to medical and healthcare careers. They joined the accelerator in 2019, looking for support to increase their social impact by developing their offer.
The accelerator was able to do just that by giving them access to a free incubation space, a structured business support programme, led by industry experts and one-to-one business mentoring. During their time on the programme Generation Medics were able to pilot The UK Aspiring Healthcare Professionals Conference – the UK’s largest, free health careers conference for state-school pupils, widening-access to hundreds of careers and allowing young people to hear from an impressive speaker list including Baroness Dido Harding the Chair of NHS Improvement. Generation Medics also continued to grow their tech platform providing ongoing online support to young people.
Founder, Dr Hinnah Rafique and her team are working towards a healthcare workforce that better represents the society it serves. A future where the circumstances that a child is born into does not limit their future career options.
Dr Rafique comments:
“Taking part in the WiST programme helped us accelerate our growth and social impact. Over the course of just six months we achieved a lot – we generated new employment opportunities, grew our programmes and impact, expanded our tech platform and best of all we have a realistic sustainability plan for our future. I’m really happy to have been part of such a unique accelerator supporting women in social tech and my team and I are excited to see what is in the future for our peers.”
