Who Is MileMarker™?

Our History

Developed by a team of clinicians and educators, MileMarker™ creators sought to overcome challenges stemming from documenting and assessing a resident’s operative experiences and enhancing the way procedure-based residency training programs document and assess their trainees. After leveraging the software engineering teams from Johns Hopkins to develop the software behind MileMarker™, our founders were able to secure a starter grant from the Johns Hopkins Institute for Excellence in Education (IEE) and the Maryland Innovatiion Initiative. They began pilot programs at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland as well as at several plastic and reconstructive surgery divisions nationwide.Today MileMarker™ is working to expand to more institutions and specialties.

Here’s an article about our company’s origin.
