What is RethinkX?

ReThinkX is a new venture which aims to foster an environment of learning and facilitate the interaction and connecting of students, academics, entrepreneurs and industry persons allowing them to leverage ideas and simple solutions into innovations that solve complex problems.

We will do this by:

  • Showcasing the best and the brightest thinkers, innovators, and developers in the medical field,
  • Providing a platform for creativity in invention and problem-solving in healthcare,
  • Developing novel solutions to difficult problems from the micro- to the global level.

In 2014, we set out to create a universally accessible medium that could showcase the cutting edge of healthcare from around the world alongside the work of the next generation of healthcare professionals. The MedX conference was born, and unlike any other event of its kind, we endeavoured to make it entirely free to attend.

Following an excellent 2016 conference with a line-up of globally-acclaimed speakers and a range of workshops from charities, speciality societies, and state-of-the-art companies, MedX has expanded.

As ReThinkX, we incorporate two new ventures alongside the MedX conference: xHorizons and xSolve. xHorizons seeks to showcase the amazing advances in healthcare on a more regular basis, with roundtables, lectures, and workshops every month. xSolve seeks to expand the problem-solving aspects of the mini-hackathons previously done during the MedX conference into a solution-generating machine for educational establishments, charities, and companies alike.

At the core of everything we do is the ideology that we founded MedX with: Provide a platform for the otherwise out-of-reach thought leaders, designers, doers, and creators at the forefront of modern healthcare, and bridge the gap between them and the next generation.
