From Research Bench To Clinical Bedside

“I am trained as a family physician. I probably spend, I would say, 80 to 85% of my time doing that job. But the thing I find most interesting is actually side projects. So as I mentioned previously, there’s something called from bench to bedside, i.e. the research bench to the clinical bedside. And a lot of that is done by small companies or people trying to start up with new ideas of how to integrate technology, particularly into healthcare.

And so you need that clinician’s perspective on what the, perhaps on a medical EMR, what the screen looks like in front of a doctor or how patients would respond to having things put on their chest or on their arm. So I get to participate a lot in those type of companies, everywhere from medical marijuana to wearables.”
