Dr Martin Seneviratne - Technology meets Medicine, but not in the way you might think…
Wednesday March 15 2017 7.15pm
Dr Martin Seneviratne is the kind of guy that will put other 27 year-olds to shame. Currently a junior doctor at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred hospital, he did medicine after a BSc in physics at the University of Sydney and UCLA – from which he graduated with the university medal.
Dr Martin has worked with the George Institute on the HealthNavigator app (a tool for community cardiovascular and diabetes screening); founded WardConnect (a checklist app to improve communication on multidisciplinary hospital ward rounds); won the 2013 HISA App Challenge and the 2014 Health Roundtable Innovation Award; and is currently a member of the HISA Board. He has also worked overseas in France, Vietnam and PNG.
It’s no wonder that he was selected as one of only 50 young people from across the world to attend the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Switzerland in January 2017. This year sees Dr Martin at Stanford University on a John Monash Scholarship to study clinical informatics; and he plans to continue to develop his career working as a physician, software developer and tech entrepreneur.
