Downtown Salzburg

Imagine this. It’s 7 am on a Monday morning and you’re about to do something which will impact the lives of millions of patients...

On any other Monday morning, you’d be hitting the snooze button as you groggily kick off the sheets and get ready for another day at work. Monday-itis would be starting to creep in as you sip your coffee and mentally prepare yourself to begin the dreaded commute across town. But today is different...

You're in Salzburg—the City of Salt!

The alarm is off. The sounds of a bustling city are noticeably absent as you slowly ease into the morning. A soft ray of early sunlight filters through the embroidered curtains and lands gently on your face, rousing you naturally from your well-earned rest. Birds chirp on the ledge of your hotel room, beckoning you to look outside your window and take in the stunning scenery. Salzburg—the hometown of Mozart, the Sound of Music, and Medmastery—is world-renowned for its beauty, and you are beginning to understand why. Named for the salt mines that brought fame and fortune to this little picturesque town, it’s easy to see why the baroque architecture and mesmerizing scenery earned it a UNESCO heritage listing.

Not a bad way to start off your week...

Where would you rather be on a weekday morning? Medmastery teacher Siamak (Mak) Moayedi, MD cycling along Lake Wolfgang, Austria.

But, you wonder, how did you get here?

Let’s start at the beginning.

It was just eight months ago that Franz Wiesbauer, the founder of Medmastery, reached out to you and asked if you'd like to create a course with Medmastery's award-winning medical teaching company. The prospect excited you, but you were reluctant to say yes because it seemed like it would be a lot of work. Franz’s enthusiasm and Medmastery’s existing library of cutting-edge courses, however, convinced you that this was going to be a good investment of your time.

Fast forward a few months, and you’re cantering through the streets of Austria, getting ready to record a course that will teach thousands of doctors who will be responsible for millions of patients throughout their careers.

“I’m moving here,” you quietly decide, as you stroll towards the Medmastery office in downtown Salzburg. You’ve been building up to this moment for several months and the scenery is just the icing on the cake. You’re looking forward to the end of the week when you’ll be celebrating the end of your course recording with a sightseeing trip.

You might decide to hike and cycle through lush green mountains, walk among stunning floral displays and opulent palaces, wander through the birthplace of Mozart as you sample world-famous Salzburg beer, or even gatecrash an Austrian wedding...

But before all that, we’ll pack you into our recording studio and get to work.

Recording a Medmastery course

Mak Moayedi recently produced a course with Medmastery and recounts his experience in the following video:

Like Mak, you’ve spent months preparing for this—crafting a world-class medical course isn’t easy. But our team of award-winning designers, producers, and medical consultants have been working alongside you, every step of the way. And it’s finally showtime!

You start out feeling nervous... being on camera can be nerve-wracking, right? You’ve lectured thousands of students from a podium, but this is a whole different ball game—your words will live on forever in the annals of digital medicine. But you’re soon put at ease by a recording team who’ve done this dozens of times. They are here to make you look good and it’s actually... kinda fun! Creating an immortalized record of your deep expertise is really quite enjoyable. Who would have known?

... and more smiles on set...

Lots of laughs, great food, and recordings later, you did it! You’ve extracted your expertise onto video that will soon be streaming on the phones, iPads, and laptops of thousands of eager doctors and students around the world.

But first, you’ll head out for a night of scrumptious food and delightful drinks with the team who’ll spend the next few weeks fine-tuning and perfecting your course for launch—milestone achieved!
