Are you a medic who wants to leverage your expertise in a consultancy career?

Dan Garland teaching medics

Do you have an idea for a health tech startup that you want to get off the ground? Do you want to be able to manage other developers? Or do you want to clock up some CPD points in a new discipline?

This course will give you a solid foundation in web development, covering CSS, JavaScript and HTML coding skills, enough to get a basic website or app up and running. We Got Coders has teamed up with Medic Footprints to bring you a comprehensive package of skills in one course, enabling you to build a career in health tech or to get your project or startup off to a great start.

In fact, the course includes three build projects:

  1. An interactive body key where you highlight areas of the body and through a series of yes/no questions diagnose to critical ailments (like this example)
  2. An time-saving app that poses questions to a patient in order to populate a referral letter to a specialist
  3. A positive reinforcement game that promotes mental health through positive and negative word association

You’ll also learn all about SEO, social media and content marketing, which are invaluable skills in any profession today.

Blended online and in-person learning

As soon as you register you’ll get access to the full e-learning syllabus online with the learning materials, and supporting lessons. You can work through this content at your own pace, and at your own time; working around your busy schedule. The course is structured in two sections – one online, one workshop – and it’s completely up to you how you tackle them. There’s no time limit, so you can fit it in around your commitments.

To give you an idea, the online parts might take a beginner between 50-80 hours. The workshop lasts two days and happen every fortnight at our London office or HQ in rural Hertfordshire.


Running every Saturday, we run workshops that cover the essentials of web development and how to build your career in health tech. You can attend three workshops as part of the price on a flexible basis- just book the days that suit you best.

At the end of each workshop you’ll have built a working site, app or game. We'll cover each app on rotation, so that you can attempt different applications in each session.

  1. Identify the various technologies required to create web applications
