    • Medicine

In this week’s episode we are joined by Dr Fiona who shares with us her story from the very beginning. We discuss the many transitions she has taken from medical student to consultant radiologist to eventually becoming a VC founder and managing partner. Dr Fiona talks about the importance of leadership, network effects and the efforts clinicians should make to broaden their horizons. Tune in as we discover why she pursued an MBA and how we can only connect the dots in our careers when we look backwards. 


Finally we spend some time discussing the regret minimisation mindset and why we should believe in ourselves when others don’t.


Dr Fiona is the Founder & Managing Partner of Crista Galli Ventures, prior to investing in healthtech, she worked in the NHS in London as a radiologist at UCLH. Fiona has developed national health policy at the UK Department of Health as clinical advisor to Professor Sir Bruce Keogh and also worked as a management consultant. She holds a stellar academic record with over 20 awards, bursaries and scholarships. Fiona holds an MBA from London Business School and an MPH from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She is one of a select few doctors worldwide to be dual board certified in Radiology and Public Health.
