Online ed-tech platform Omnicuris, targeted at upskilling doctors, plans to ramp up its user-base by more than double, besides strengthening its collaboration with key medical bodies.

“From the beginning, our focus has been to increase the reach and expand the user base. Currently, we have crossed the one lakh-mark and we aim to reach out to 2.5 lakh doctors in 2019,” said Savitha Kuttan, Co-Founder and CEO, Omnicuris.

The start-up also wants to deepen its content in every speciality and would further strengthen its collaboration with various associations such as Indian Medical Association (IMA), Association of Physicians of India (API) and The Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India (FOGSI).

With plans to expand its content, Omnicuris is also planning to come up with new courses. “Every year our medical team comes up with the curriculum, which is based on the needs of the doctors. Now, we plan to launch a course on preventive cardiology, besides focusing on the pre-diabetes aspect,” said Kuttan.

Launched in 2016, Omnicuris — which means healthcare for all in Latin — is only for allopathic doctors. It offers courses in 10 specialities across medicine and has partnerships with over 35 medical associations.

“In 2019, we are aiming to reach out to the North-East and Eastern parts of the country and we think this will be beneficial for us in achieving our targets,” she added.

The course is available for the doctors for free, while the company gets its funding from speciality medical associations and pharmaceutical companies.
