Management Consulting for Medics

Hello friends,
Here’s an idea—
Reading scientific papers is really hard 😩. Here’s a paper that came out in Nature last week. They’re using AI to predict and prevent blindness from macular degeneration. Really cool.
But I don’t understand most of it.
So what do I do? I try and pick out key points. Then I see that it’s published in Nature, one of the world’s most respected journals. I trust it.
There’s a name for this fallacy: the appeal to authority. Andrew Wakefield’s destructive MMR/autism research was published in the Lancet for example.
To really understand it, I need a good understanding of ophthalmology, statistics and computer science 🧐
So what’s the idea?

Podcast
This week’s podcast was a lot of fun. I spoke to Dr Charlotte Lee, the UK director of Big Health and former Management Consultant at KPMG.
You’re going to love this episode if you want to get inside the head of a super accomplished doctorpreneur. We cover—
  • What’s management consulting really like (all expensed trips to Vegas)!? 💰
  • How do you get your digital health solution into the NHS? 🏥
  • Why you need a performance coach 🧠 🦾
The Idea
Imagine being able to see annotations from leaders in the field when you read a paper. Like Genius but for academic papers 👇
