About Us

Our Mission

  • Change the way medical education is delivered
  • Create a positive learning environment centered on community
  • Elevate education to not just be about what is in the books but also what is encountered in real life
  • Make learning from leaders accessible and therefore uniform

About Our Logo

The Rod of Asclepius: The serpent-entwined rod wielded by the Greek deity associated with healing and medicine

The word Scientia: Latin for knowledge, a knowing, expertness or experience. It has grown to represent a socially embedded activity of people seeking, systematizing and sharing knowledge


BoardsU Logo

The Shield: A symbol to signify that in medicine we are part of the same family crest

The Open Book: Learning is limitless. This is our commitment to sharing our knowledge freely

The Stethoscope: The reason we are on this journey – our patients. This is all done with patients in mind so we may take better care of them.
