About us

institutionIVIMEDS, a not for profit organisation, was founded in 2002 as:

“a unique collaboration of leading edge medical schools and institutions worldwide committed to achieving maximum benefit from new educational technologies”

A major focus has been the development of a bespoke multimedia authoring tool, Riverside, based on the unique needs of medical education.

IVIMEDS promotes collaborative practice among academic members and encourages research and development projects which help us better understand and implement technology for learning and teaching across member institutions.

The virtual aspect of IVIMEDS therefore facilitates international collaboration.
