So how did it all start?

Horizon was created in 2019 by doctors with years of clinical and teaching experience both in the UK and internationally.

While working with Primary Care Clinicians in Zambia and Malawi we saw their ambition and appetite for professional development but a gap in accessible provision.

Horizon was founded to fill the gap.

We make sure that all of our lessons are updated, evidence based and downloadable so learning can happen offline.

We want to be sure that the courses are relevant so we talk to our users regularly, this way we're creating a community of learners. That's how we met Margaret, here on the right, a keen learner who gives us super constructive feedback.

Access to quality education for Primary Care Clinicians benefits everyone. Online lessons reach the remotest clinicians and most underserved communities. It's a simple idea really.

Dr Minnie Lacamp

Paediatrician and Director

I qualified as a doctor in 1996 and became a member of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health following my postgraduate exams in 2000. I worked and trained in paediatrics in the North East of England and have also worked in Zimbabwe. I have been involved in teaching medical students, nurses, doctors and midwives and it remains a great passion of mine. I love the opportunity technology has given us to share both education and knowledge which in turn helps to improve healthcare for all globally. I presented neonatal medical research to the neonatal society in Tours, France and NorCAS (northern region abnormality survey) in the UK and Norway. More recently I have written medical articles and blogs for an international telemedicine organisation.

Nicola McCahill


I’m the admin person at Horizon, dealing with enquiries and accreditation. When you contact us you'll probably speak to me. I started life as a barrister specialising in crime, have a law degree and an MA. More recently I’ve worked for children's charities and as a volunteer operations manager at a telemedicine charity where I met the other members of the Horizon team. We enjoyed working together and immediately saw the potential for online medical education. We're a small but dedicated team, passionate about sharing skills and knowledge and levelling up access to quality education. Do get in touch, we love to discuss our work with like-minded individuals.

Logo Competition for school children in our community

From their newsletter:

'Horizon Medical Education' recently set a competition for secondary schools to design their new logo. The winner was to receive an Amazon voucher for their achievements and their ideas would contribute to the final design of the company logo. Against very stiff competition and some great work from all the students at Chiltern Hills Academy, Finn Wilcox in Year 9 won! The company's feedback: 'Finn had done some excellent research to create his final design idea and had really hit the mark of what the company does'. Well done Finn!
