About Salem Oaks

We dare to imagine a world in which people are equipped to collaborate to successfully shape the health ecosystem of the future.


After years of working in healthcare silos, healthcare professionals, industry, and patients, along with their caregivers, have forgotten how to talk to each other, let alone work together. There is a major shift occurring in healthcare today and these silos are starting to break down. Salem Oaks works to help people understand each other once again.
We were established based on some core beliefs. We believe that:

  • Patients become experts in their own disease in a way that scientists and medical professionals cannot.
  • The vast potential of a patient's expertise is not being applied to the development of new medicines.
  • Those patients deserve to be at the table throughout the Research and Development process.
  • Companies want these patients to be involved.
  • There is a gap between the two that must and can be filled by preparing both to work together
We create educational experiences that will prepare patients, parents, caregivers, and advocates to have a greater impact on the course of their health and the health of others through their active participation in developing medicines. We work with patients to build the knowledge, skills, and confidence required to have a real impact. We want to bridge the gap between scientists who chose to enter the field and patients who did not.
