Our Story

We’re three junior doctors, who one day put our heads together and thought – there’s a better way of doing this.

Benjamin Smeeton, co-founder

Our vision

A shared ambition

to simplify medical education.

As students we felt that online medical revision services were lacking and that there was considerable room for innovation. Unified by our shared passion we set about building a company to change the way medicine is taught online.

A natural evolution of our shared passion - teaching.

Pulsenotes was first envisioned by Benjamin Smeeton and Benjamin Norton, whilst medical students at the University of Exeter. They felt that current online medical revision services were lacking and that there was considerable room for improvement and innovation. Realising the scope of their vision they brought on board Samuel Belete, a fellow medical student. With their broad skills base and a unified sense of purpose, the newly fashioned Pulsenotes team began to drive the business forward in earnest.


A multi-award winning medical education start-up with unbridled ambition.

We provide students with an immersive and intuitive online learning environment encompassing concise video lectures, applied self-assessment & comprehensive lecture notes. Built from the ground up in-house, our online platform distances itself from the competition. Design perfectly compliments functionality. Visual cues guide the user making the site immediately familiar and intuitive.


Pulsenotes is ready to revolutionise the online education sector.

We will continue to push boundaries, relentlessly innovating and updating our resources. 2020 will see the company grow faster than ever before, as we establish ourselves as the new benchmark in medical education.
