OR NOTHING"

OUR STORY
Providing education to professionals since 2007

On The Edge Group started as Medicine On The Edge (MOTE) in 2007.  It was a joint collaboration between International Medical Systems and Hogan Group International. While our activities were initially designed for medical professionals we have over the years been asked to consider expanding into other areas. So in 2015 we responded to these requests and took the very successful MOTE model and adapted it to meet the needs of the legal, dental and education communities. We remain a small but dynamic organisation that aims to combine high quality education and training with a range of stimulating adventure based activities. This is based on our belief that you learn best and perform better when both your mind and body are stimulated.

In March 2020 COVID-19 restrictions meant the cancellation of all of our upcoming trips. But now with travel restrictions easing around the world we are ready to relaunch and we look forward to having you join us for our unique combination of adventure, education, collaboration and collegiality.
