Welcome to episode fourteen of Passionate Pioneers!

In this episode, we took the podcast to London, England during a business trip and spent time with the most-watched surgeon in human history. 

Dr. Shafi Ahmed is a world-renowned, multi-award winning surgeon, teacher, futurist, author, innovator and entrepreneur at The Royal London and St. Bartholomew’s Hospitals. 

Because of Dr. Ahmed’s passion of merging the world of medicine, global education, and virtual and augmented reality to democratize and scale surgeon education, millions of people around the world are now able to further pursue their surgical passions.   

During this episode, Dr. Ahmed discussed how he was able to spot upstart technologies, like Google Glass, and their future potential to globally impact how millions can access learning, where he sees technology shaping the healthcare industry in the future, and how other healthcare industry leaders can create an environment for their peers to leverage game-changing innovations to fundamentally impact an industry that touches every person.
