School: University of Malaya
As a student of opportunity, Xing Yan Choo was always on the search for a problem he could solve or a service that would enrich the lives of others. When he discovered that medical students in Malaysia lacked the resources they needed to enhance their studies, he started his company, E-Med, as a way to bridge the gap by way of an online platform. E-Med not only informs medical students about the latest medical events occurring across the country, but connects them to forums, blogs and videos to further facilitate the exchange of knowledge within the medical industry. Choo’s long-term vision for E-Med is to be a promoter of health and wellness by organizing medical events in rural areas.
