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 has become quite popular.
During my first year of medical school, I started networking and doing research in my free time. I wanted to form 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. I stepped away from the MD program to see how far I could push the startup in 12 months.
MobileMSK has received about $50,000 of support from organizations like the Medical Alley Association and Microsoft. We are not currently fundraising, but we welcome support as work to launch our first commercial healthcare product soon.
