About Internet Medical Society
Medicalia.org is the home site of the "Internet Medical Society" (IMS, http://ims.org.es), a worldwide, independent organization funded in 2005. IMS is aimed at promoting best practices in the use of internet in medical practice and medical education. We provide a broad range of educational activities and opportunities for doctors and allied healthcare professionals. We also aim to promote an exchange of information and ideas on the science and practice of medicine, both within the health professions and with responsible and informed public opinion.
As the world's health care systems continue to evolve, the IMS is dedicated to ensuring sustainable physician practices that result in better health outcomes for patients. This work is captured in the IMS's strategic plan, which aims to ensure that enhancements to health care worldwide are physician-led, advance the physician-patient relationship, and ensure that health care costs can be prudently managed.
We are one of the largest providers of continuing medical education worldwide. We provide accredited courses for continuing professional development, which is so vital in allowing doctors, nurses, surgeons and other healthcare professionals their continuing freedom to practice.
We receive no state funding to carry out our core work and are dependent on generous donations and legacies. Please, consider donating.
You can become an associate member of IMS just by registering in Medicalia.org and joining this group. In order to become a full member of ISM, please fill in this form.
