Mr. Gerald Jaideep is Chief Executive Officer of Medvarsity Online. A quintessential maverick, Jaideep steered Medvarsity onto a rapid growth path in the healthcare ed-tech space, after taking over the reins of the organisation from the promoters of Apollo Group in 2016. Under his guidance, the company went through a complete overhaul right from change in brand identity, products, technology, design and learning experience.
Mr. Jaideep has an extensive entrepreneurial and corporate experience, spanning over 27 years. He began his professional career as an entrepreneur in 1993 during the final year of his college, when he co-founded Quadrant Creations, which was into developing e-learning solutions for the BFSI industry across South-East Asia.
His next entrepreneurial venture came almost after two decades, when he co-founded a wellness and business consulting firm ColourShot in 2012, which focused on helping organizations measure the business/financial impact of a healthier workforce. The entrepreneurial venture came to close in 2014 – a year after he joined Simplilearn as Chief Operating Officer in 2013.
He joined Medvarsity in 2016, leading the company to achieve several milestones. Under his leadership, the company expanded its students and alumni network across 192 countries, certifying over 500,000 healthcare professionals worldwide. Medvarsity also launched India’s first medical simulation aggregator platform in May 2021, Bookmysim, as well as an online medical learning destination for healthcare professionals globally, Dosily, offering 1000 courses across 25 specialties.
