About Convey

The Future of Medical Education is Mobile & Social 

Meet The Team!

Mike Donoghue, CEO

Mike is a 30-year healthcare veteran and an avid podcast listener. Mike’s thesis for ConveyMED is that podcasting is an underutilized medium to deliver professional education and a new solution is needed so that physicians can take full advantage of the value of mobile audio. Prior to starting ConveyMED, Mike was the SVP of Global Marketing for the Orthopedic division of Smith & Nephew where he held multiple leadership roles in product marketing, medical education, marketing communications, R&D, and commercialization. As a former physical therapist, Mike understands the importance of ongoing clinical education for the sake of optimal patient care.
