Minneapolis-based clinical rotations platform Clinician Nexus on Wednesday announced that it’s raised $1.5 million in seed funding.
Chicago-based Hyde Park Ventures led the funding round. Local funders included Great North Labs and the Sofia Fund. Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai also contributed.
To date, the company has now raised $2.3 million.
Clinician Nexus CEO Katrina Anderson says she aims to use the most recent fundraise to expand the number of hospitals she’s working with. The platform is aimed at helping hospitals manage their clinical rotation process with medical schools.
“Our overarching goal is to connect the community at large,” Anderson says. “We want to get as many hospitals in one spot as possible.”
Across the country, the company currently works with 100 hospitals and 150 schools, including the U of M and the University of Utah.
In a statement, Great North Labs managing partner Pradip Madan said Clinician Nexus has benefits for all three “constituents” in medical education: med schools, students, and hospitals.
“A significant part of Clinician Nexus’ adoption and growth is coming from referrals among training leadership at schools and hospitals,” Madan said. “This speaks to the urgent unmet need their offering serves.”
Meanwhile, Anderson also plans to use some of the recent capital to invest in added functionalities for schools on the platform. For instance, she’s looking into adding a function that would allow for student evaluations on the platform.
TCB recently recognized Anderson as a "Person to Know" in 2020.
