Hi 👋 I'm Sam, the founder of MobileMSK.

I'm also a medical student pursuing a combined career in clinical medicine and innovation. When I'm not working, I enjoy training for endurance sports and skiing. I also love movies, music, hanging out with my family, and playing with our dog, Bode.

In 2015, I had my first of two surgeries for recurrent shoulder dislocations which kicked off a 5-year rehab journey, as well as a deeper commitment to my personal health and wellness. I was also exposed to telemedicine and explored the idea for virtual physical therapy which is quite popular.

During my first year of medical school, I started networking and doing research in my free time. I wanted to organize a startup to expand the capabilities of healthcare software, starting with the musculoskeletal space and going deeper than virtual PT.

Ultimately, I realized a major opportunity with back pain (high prevalence, top expense category, crossover to general medicine/wellness) and digital health funding was soaring. MobileMSK is not officially fundraising - We received about $50,000 of support from organizations like the Medical Alley Association and Microsoft. We are gaining traction to launch our first commercial healthcare product soon.
