About Us

Founded by Lawrence Ejembi Ede, a medical doctor from Nigeria, Medfast is designed to connect healthcare students and professionals in developing nations with the latest advances in medicine.

Ede came up with the idea for Medfast as he transitioned from working and studying in his native country to living, studying and working in the United States.

While he knew he was fortunate for the opportunities he was able to pursue, Ede realized many others in Africa and elsewhere did not have the resources to access the best and most recent clinical information.

But by partnering with topnotch training organizations and institutions, Ede has been able to make the latest clinical instruction available to anyone, anywhere in the world, at greatly reduced rates.

Now, international boundaries, vast distances and struggling economies no longer matter when talented people wish to advance their healthcare careers — and improve quality of life for their patients and communities. With Medfast, users are only limited by their own aptitude. Students and healthcare professionals in resource-strapped regions are now able to take their rightful place in the global village.
