Sam Glassenberg, Founder & CEO: Why Level Ex?

Sam Glassenberg, Founder & CEO: Why Level Ex?

I grew up in a family of physicians. I would have been a 3rd generation doctor had I not chosen a career in the video game industry. Over the last 15 years, I’ve has leveraged video game development tools to create one-of-a-kind medical simulations to help family members, attending physicians at academic hospitals, train their residents and medical students.

As I delved deeper into this work, I realized that the state-of-the-art in entertainment and video games was a decade ahead of surgical training – not only in terms of visual quality, but in engagement methodology and business/distribution models as well.

I created Level Ex to close that gap. My experiences have shaped my mission to improve surgical outcomes by preparing physicians for the unexpected, rare, and challenging surgical scenarios they face in the operating room.
