Festival streams

We’re bringing top experts and thought leaders together for an afternoon of short bite-sized talks and presentations in front of a public audience. Our program explores the MED theme for that year and is designed to educate, inspire and excite.

One of our core objectives is to inspire the doctors and healthcare professionals of tomorrow, particularly those from underrepresented communities. We’re supporting schools and community groups to bring children and young adults in contact with medicine through visits to healthcare organizations as well as bringing expert speakers, workshops and learning materials to them.

We’re supporting budding entrepreneurs, start-ups and scale-ups through our festival showcases, pitch events and public engagement activities. Through our intra and intercity networks we aim to support disruption in medicine and healthcare.

We believe film is a great medium to help get the public immersed in medicine. We’re showcasing some of the best international feature and short films in each MED city, often complemented by talks or interactive activities, with a focus on the MED theme for that year.

Hosted in one of our MED cities each year our annual summit brings together the top experts and thought leaders to help advance thinking on our annual theme. We aim to capture this knowledge through an annual whitepaper helping to advance that area of medicine in each MED city.
