About us

DoctorsinItaly is a purpose-driven startup, founded in 2018 and accelerated by Bocconi University’s startup program.

Our digital platform seamlessly connects culturally competent doctors to those who are part of the international community of travelers, expatriates, and digital nomads and happen to need medical care in Italy. 

The post-pandemic world is increasingly digital and borderless, and people will be working, traveling, studying, and living wherever they wish. 

Every day, we are driven by our mission to simplify and streamline the healthcare journey, combining qualified medical assistance with speed and convenience, and lowering the language and cultural barriers to accessing healthcare.
