This week we speak with 'doctorpreneur' Dr Evelyn Chan.  Dr Chan is a peadiatric doctor turned CEO and co-founder of Virtual Reality start up Smileyscope.

Evelyn studied medicine and surgery at Monash University in Australia before becoming a Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford where she studied medical anthropology and public health. She then worked at the Boston Consulting Group, specialising in public sector and healthcare strategy. 
As the CEO and co-founder of Smileyscope Evelyn is now working to change the experiences of children in clinical settings.  Smileyscope grew out of Everlyn’s own clinical experience and aims to transform paediatric needle procedures through patient-centred Virtual Reality. 

As we will hear some of the advantages that Evelyn has found in her work is that VR is able to decrease patient pain and anxiety and makes it quicker and safer for clinicians to perform procedures.  

Evelyn gives us a great insight into the process that she went through in getting her company to where it is today and in doing so conducted the largest clinical study on VR in a paediatric setting anywhere in the world.  She shares some great insights into lessons learned and we really hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did.
