Support your medical students in every step of their development

With PebblePad's award-winning Learning Journey Platform.


About PebblePad

We believe that students who are encouraged to extract all they can from each and every step of their learning journey are the ones most likely to succeed. The PebblePad Learning Journey Platform offers medical schools award-winning technology to help educators support, guide and develop students – from induction to graduation, and beyond.


Mission Critical

Medical schools across the globe have a 'mission critical' requirement to develop dynamic, future-ready medical graduates in real-world settings. With clinical skills, specialist placements, electives, research and collaborative projects all forming significant components of a student’s overall medical education, medical schools need a technology versatile enough to support these varied learning and development activities and encourage active, authentic learning - within and beyond the classroom.

Our Mission

Ensuring Mission Success

This 'mission-critical' requirement is resulting in many medical schools across the globe looking at ways to bolster their learning ecology with tools to better support and guide experiential learning and bridge the theory - practice gap. PebblePad offers tools that extend far beyond its portfolio-building capability, providing an end-to-end Learning Journey Platform to help medical educators create scaffolded frameworks to support learning activities in any context, alongside a suite of tools to formatively assess and guide development. If you'd like to learn more about how this works in practice, then our latest medical education guide, which includes three customer case studies, is a must-read.
