The objective of Medics Academy is to drive global access to world leading, formally accredited and quality assured medical education. Using an innovative online platform, optimised for any phone, tablet, or computer, Medics Academy is driving a digital transformation to augment continuous training and professional development. By accessing the training courses, which are divided into short, retainable units, professionals are able to enhance their learning whenever convenient or necessary. This may prove particularly useful in geographies and environments, where clinicians can access hundreds of videos, instantly, containing the most up-to-date guidelines and information, delivered succinctly by leading professionals in their field. The technology tracks progress through the courses, as well as the potential to map content automatically using smart recognition software, allowing for ongoing CPD accreditation and progress updates. Healthcare professionals can be confident content has been peer-reviewed and quality assured. Using technological innovations such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, we can understand a learner's needs, understand whether the complex ideas that health professionals need to grasp, have been explained in an optimised way and what other opportunities for learning they could take advantage of. Using this technology they would then have that instantly available to them anytime, anywhere.
