Management Team

OSCE Skills (and parent company MediStudents) was founded by Matt Green and Laura Henderson in 2006. In 2010, Phil Rae came on board as a partner to undertake all the technical tasks and the development of the website and app.

  • Matt Green

    Co-founder, Content Author

    Matt has a bit of a varied background. Having been born and spent his first few years in Devon, he moved to the Isle of Man at the age of 8. Completing school there and with his eyes set firmly on medical school he came up just short on his A levels – damn you chemistry! A further 4 months at college in Oxford and he finally got the grade and was off to university in St Andrews. It was here that, over a boozy first night he met Phil. After getting over the hangover, he made it to lectures where he met and soon became best mates with Laura.

    Having transferred to Manchester University to complete his clinical studies, Laura and Matt made plans to spend their elective in Grenada. It was here that Matt’s idea of an online education site for clinical skills was born. After a very brief discussion with Laura, the plans were already in place for Osceskills.

    On returning and whilst studying for finals, the first incarnation of Osceskills came about – it looked terrible! Thankfully though people used it and, having remained friends with Phil over the years, we drew on his computer wizardry and it became what it is today.

    Matt is still in clinical training and is currently a surgical registrar in the West Midlands. Although still completing his generic training, Matt has his sights set on a career in oncoplastic breast surgery – only another 5 years to go!! As well as clinical work he has a keen interest in medical education and plans to undertake a masters in medical education in the near future.

  • Dr Laura Hunter Henderson, BSc, MBChB, DGM, MRcGP

    Co-founder, Content Author

    Laura was born in Fife but grew up in a small seaside town in East Lothian where she attended school.  At the age of 17 years Laura went to St-Andrews University to study Chemistry.  It was whilst here that she realised her passion actually lay in medicine and successfully transferred back to first year to study this.  It was in her first year of medical school that she met Matt (co-founder of osce skills).

    Like Matt, she studied her pre-clinical studies at St Andrews and then went onto Manchester for her clinical studies.  Laura and Matt went on their medical elective together and whilst there (sunning it in Grenada) Matt voiced his idea about a medical website, and shortly after that OSCE Skills was launched.

    Upon completion of her medical degree she returned to Scotland for her foundation jobs, where she worked in various hospitals in Fife and Edinburgh.  After foundation jobs she entered into a four year GP training post, which she is due to complete in August 2013.

    Alongside her interest in teaching Laura also has an interest in elderly medicine.  She completed her Diploma of Geriatric Medicine (Royal College of Physicians) in May 2012.

    As well as working as a GP in Edinburgh Laura also works as a locum in A&E in Fife.

  • Phil Rae

    Technical Director

    Technical Director at design agency Jepson Rae, Phil is a specialist in web development and UX design. It was whilst studying Internet Computer Science at St Andrews University in 2001, that Phil met Matt on the first night of Fresher’s Week.

    In 2010, over a beer in a sunny beer garden of a South London pub, Matt informed Phil of how successful the original incarnation of OSCE Skills was becoming. Since then, Phil has been on board, helping take the OSCE Skills website to the next level.
