Hi there! We are Alan & co and our passion is the human condition.



A few months ago we completed one of the first big steps on a long road - graduating from med school. Being fresh off the benches is an exciting journey on it's own but we didn't want to stop at that. We always wanted share with others the incredible understanding of the human mind and body and how it is a part of our everyday life. So after much pondering and bringing together of people, we decided it was time to start something new, something different that will provide a new perspective. And here we are.

Medtinker is a platform for understanding medical sciences through the facets of everyday life. We tackle topics that sometimes may appear mundane but through our special prism they gain a whole new shape and form. In a nutshell our projects consists of:

  • Pathology in Fiction
    Depictions of medicine appear in movies, books, video games and many other mediums, but how accurate are they? Do some of them have an ingenious quirk? Let’s find out together in this semi-regular column we run.

  • On Improving Yourself
    We are firm believers on self-improvement through learning. In this series we nudge you towards content that we believe can help you improve both personally and professionally. 

  • Medexicon
    Are you a medical student or working in related fields? Or just a curious person by nature? Then our collection of most common terms and concepts may help you better understand this fascinating side of science and art.
The...  necronomicon of medicine.

  • Consulting Program
    We are always on the lookout for new ideas and initiatives that we can help grow bigger and brighter! The requirement? That you share our passions - knowledge and science.

We believe that knowledge is the single most important thing that opens up ones horizons. It should always be available to everyone, for free andin-depth. In order to achieve that, we didn’t want to start up just another blog, we wanted a community driven, quality oriented project that would involve as many people as possible sharing ideas.



The hard truth is that everything costs money in one way or another. And if we ever want to improve, to add more to our project, a source of funding is required. However, just like you, we never liked some of the more shady business practices that some platforms employ - pointless ads for things you don't need, misleading click bait titles, veiled sponsorship. We said “No! There has to be a better way”. And there is - you.

By investing in us, you ensure that none of the above will ever be associated with our content. Apart from that, you will ensure the day to day expenses (website maintenance costs, coffee, commission fees, did I mention the coffee?) as well as supporting any new ventures that might come up. With a steady monthly backup, all of our content can remain quality oriented while our readers can have complete access.

If you’d like to go even further we are always open to new ideas and initiatives. So why not become a part of our team? By pledging to one the last two reward tiers, you can either join us as an affiliate author or if you have your own project, we can help each other to make them both better.



We wouldn’t have it any other way! Do go ahead and check out our hub. And do drop us a message if you have any question and/or just say hi!

Don’t miss your chance to be part of something awesome with us! :)
