Life as a doctor demands you give everything. Dr Sam Hazledine learned this first as an intern. Years later, Medrecruit was his response. Sam successfully lobbied the World Medical Association to amend the Declaration of Geneva (the modern-day Hippocratic Oath) to include:

I will attend to my own health, wellbeing, and abilities in order to provide care of the highest standard.

Medrecruit continues to advocate for, educate, and work towards better health and wellbeing for all doctors.
