New talent acquired to match our ambitions
Formed world class editorial team
As the company developed, so there was a need for new talent to be brought onboard. The world class editorial team which has been assembled over the years has its humble beginnings in the very early days of Touch Medical Media.
Touch Medical Media (TMM) was formed in 2012, following an asset purchase from Touch Briefings
The focus from print to online education began here, where the company specialized in several key medical therapy areas where we believed our education could make the biggest impact to patient health.
It was also in 2012 that TMM pioneered a totally work from home setup, allowing attraction of the best talent – not limited by geography.
With this, came a specialism in remote filmed education, putting TMM in an extremely strong position with the paradigm shift in recent times to online education and remote working.
Touch Briefings was established in 1997
Touch Briefings was established as a medically focused, peer-reviewed, free-to-access, print publisher.
