About Us

We started Motivate MD to make it easier to live a smarter life, both in and out of medicine, by creating products and services that help you be as productive as possible. From pre-health students to accomplished healthcare professionals, we have something for you.

We started as a blog and service based company, providing valuable info and affordable application help.  We launched The Premed App, a subscription product that integrates all of your med school application info, crucial goal setting, and much more. We've expanded into physical products such as our planner which breaks down your challenging goals, busy schedule, and prioritizes self-reflection.

Motivate MD was founded in 2016 by Drew Porter, M.D.
