Josh Case - Doctor and Software Developer

Josh Case

Hello! I’m Josh. I'm a doctor and a software developer. I’m using this site to share my projects in the hope it will empower other doctors and medical students to build new software, even without a tech background. I'm passionate about making the world's hospitals safer and more efficient, as well as teaching clinicians how to code. You can find me on Twitter and a few other places. If you've got a project you're working on, I'd love to hear from you!
