We’re on a mission to get the world excited about medicine

Around the world we’re on a mission to get people excited about medicine. Through a series of city-based festivals MED celebrates the best of what medicine offers, provides a platform to educate and share ideas, and helps inspire future generations.

In each city we aim to engage the public in a diverse program of experiences, exhibitions, talks and activities. From behind the scenes tours of hospitals and specifically curated exhibitions, to talks from world experts and hands-on technology demonstrations – we’ve got something for all ages and interests.

Our governance

We are currently incorporating as a community interest company (CIC) to allow us have a structure that is nimble enough for us to work effectively yet clearly not-for profit.

A CIC is a regulated organisation but simpler to run than a charity and a better fit for our size. It also offers the option to formally convert to charity status in future. Being a CIC ensures we remain transparent and sustainable whilst the legal requirements ensure we’re held to our founding values.
