WHO WE ARE
We are a not-for-profit home for doctors, medical students & other clinicians interested in using their training and experience to make an impact at scale on healthcare through entrepreneurship and innovation.
Whether you are a current or aspiring business founder, intrapreneur, innovative clinician, management consultant, working in private equity & VC, media, politics and more, ASME is the society for you.
Empowering you to make an impact on healthcare at scale
WHO IS THIS FOR
Any clinician wanting to transform healthcare through innovation
I have always believed that doctors are uniquely placed to identify problems and see opportunities to improve healthcare. I founded this society to provide a home for all those clinicians who wish to use their training, experience, and skills to make an impact at scale in healthcare. Such a home has been missing and I hope its creation will encourage more entrepreneurship and innovation and see it recognised as a legitimate complement or alternative to clinical work.

Support from leading medical entrepreneurs & innovators
“As someone that has chosen a career in health entrepreneurship over clinical medicine, I am excited to launch ASME as a much needed service to help clinicians understand the full breadth of career options in front of them”
“Medicine and healthcare in Australia must embrace the power of enterprise and the private sector in order to optimise outcomes for the community. This has not been done adequately in Australia to date, so ASME offers a critical opportunity to grow a community of individuals who will ultimately deliver better outcomes locally and around the world”
"ASME is a great initiative for medical graduates and doctors who would like to become entrepreneurs and impact healthcare at scale."
"We all need to stand back and think how to add to the body of knowledge, large and small , to build a health system of excellence we are proud of into the future. ASME is a key piece of the jigsaw engaging coalface clinicians in the innovations that will drive tomorrow."
“The new Australian Society of Medical Entrepreneurs provides a wonderful platform not only for relevant information in this emerging discipline but collegiality, networks and mentorship, especially valuable for clinicians who are entering this field.”
"As a Founding Member, it is exciting to imagine a future where the pathway to medical entrepreneurship is supported by the work of ASME"
"Creation of the ASME will foster the entrepreneurial spirit of our world-class medical researchers by providing a practical network to help bring more innovative health products to market. It’s a win-win for better healthcare and Australia’s future prosperity."
