Some Testimonials for the Mini-MD

(Excerpted from LinkedIn recommendations –
  • I’ve known Dr. Gurel for a few years a year ago took his Mini MD program. The depth of breadth of his clinical domain knowledge is astounding as his capacity to deliver it. Mini MD is a unique program that I’d recommend for non physicians whose work covers the health care space and have a desire to go deeper. It’s especially suitable for industry executives like myself and I view Mini MD as an important part of my own development, helping be better at what I do.

  • I attended Ogan’s 1-day Mini-MD course in Melbourne, AUS, in 2015. Being involved in design led innovation in the healthcare domain, I was interested in the insights that Ogan shared. How doctors think in certain situations as well as their practice. It was an intensive but worthwhile day which will appeal to innovators in this space.

  • Ogan’s MiniMD is an excellent short course for non-clinical professionals that interact regularly with health professionals, e.g. researchers, technologists, VC and lawyers. It provides not only a concise overview of biomedical and clinical disciplines, but also case studies giving insight into how decisions are made in clinical practice. I highly recommend it to innovators seeking to understand how they can best deliver value to the healthcare sector.

  • I had the privilege of attending the Mini-MD (Mini-Medical School) program taught by Ogan (at the National University of Singapore) and it was definitely one of the best decision (in terms of knowledge acquisition) I have ever made! The content (which was extremely intensive – the lecture went on for 12 hours) was useful in terms of both knowledge / insights gained, as well as practicality (real-life application). As an industry veteran, my only ‘complaints’ is the timeliness – why wasn’t this fantastic program available when I first embarked on my career as a Health Informatician 13 years ago!

  • I have been working with Ogan on finding synergies between his work in Korea and SSB’s mission in Singapore. Recently, we arranged a Mini-MD seminar in Singapore, a very unique course Ogan has designed and has been conducting in Korea. Besides the very informative syllabus, Ogan’s energy and his passion were the highlight of the seminar. We are thankful to him for adding his Mini-MD course to our biodesign training program.

The “Mini-MD”, nearly five years in development, has been offered many times and at many venues, including at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (from 2011 – 2013), at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Health Sciences and Technology (2012 – 2014) and at Samsung Research America (both the San Jose and Dallas labs) in 2013. The program has also been offered to the professional public in Singapore (National University of Singapore, Singapore-Stanford Biodesign/A*Star, and in partnership with TalentGrid Ventures), in Italy (with LABA), and in Melbourne (with Startup Health).
