The Irish Network of Healthcare Educators (INHED) was founded in 2008 with the aim of enhancing health professional education on the island of Ireland by bringing together individuals and organisations with an interest in, and responsibilities for healthcare education. The organisation began as a collaboration between the seven undergraduate medical schools on the island of Ireland. It has since developed into an integrative educational organisation for all health professional disciplines in Ireland.
INHED is a voluntary organisation dedicated to improving the quality of health professions education on the island of Ireland through the promotion of faculty development, excellence in teaching and research. The organisation is run by an executive whose members are elected by the wider INHED membership at its annual scientific meeting in accordance with the INHED constitution. The executive is answerable to the membership and each year presents an annual report including a financial report to the members at the annual general meeting. The INHED executive meets quarterly to review progress with organisational projects and to agree strategic goals and targets.
