#DARE TO THINK RARE
We are driving an attitude change towards rare diseases amongst medical students and doctors in training.
With over 7000 rare diseases, it’s impossible to know about all of them. However it is possible for doctors to:
Appreciate that rare diseases are collectively common
Recognise the exceptional challenges faced by patients with rare diseases
M4RD provides education in the Rare Disease field for medical students and doctors in training. Our ultimate aim is to improve the patient-doctor relationship and speed up the journey to diagnosis.
