Irish Network of Medical Educators

The Irish Network of Medical Educators, (INMED) was founded in 2008 with the aim of enhancing medical education on the island of Ireland by bringing together individuals and organisations with an interest in, and responsibilities for, medical and healthcare education. The organisation began as a collaboration between the seven undergraduate medical schools on the island of Ireland. It has since developed into a de facto collaboration between postgraduate colleges and undergraduate schools. There are also an increasing number of participants in INMED who come from a variety of health professions other than medicine. [More]
