After earning his medical degree at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark in 2002, Dr. Jamil chose to advance health care outside the clinical arena through the development of novel educational software at Sophus Laerdal — first with Combat Medic Training for the U.S. Department of Defense, and then with revolutionary simulators for the American Heart Association (HeartCode ACLS & PALS). He co-founded Area9 in 2006 to evolve and expand these concepts beyond health care, culminating with the sale of Area9’s educational business to McGraw-Hill Education in 2014. Over his 18 years of entrepreneurial experience he has lead dozens of teams of medical professionals and educational scientists, led large business development and partnership efforts, and managed multi-million dollar software development projects.
Dr. Jamil heads strategic initiatives including regional expansions, joint-ventures and partnerships. He oversees Area9’s diverse content development team creating materials at all levels of education, together with our growing list of partners that represent some of the world’s strongest brands dominating their respective sectors.
Dr. Jamil is a cultural bridge builder and involved in various cultural & art organizations to support building more creative and reflective companies and societies.
