Medical educational platform receives £500k investment

Continulous, a video learning platform for health professionals, has been backed by £500,000 worth of investment from a UK-based consortium.  

The company plans to use the investment to further advance and develop its education platform, and will also look to use the funds to develop new partnerships.

Company Founder and Chief Executive, Dr Eoghan Colgan, said: “With existing users in 89 countries and growing, our long-term aim is to become one of the leading global healthcare education providers and to form a worldwide network that can be used to address global healthcare challenges. This investment represents a major step forward in fulfilling our ambitions. 

The platform is available to individuals, educational institutions and healthcare organisations, and through a partnership with EB medicine, is used by 65,000 doctors.  

Graham McDonald, former Head of Global Private Equity at Aberdeen Standard Investments who led the investment consortium, said: “It is exciting to be shortening the knowledge translation gap from high-impact evidence-based research to frontline practice by bringing together the leading researchers and subject experts onto one platform, with Continulus facilitating this global network.”
