The Institute for Medical and Nursing Education, Inc. (IMNE), is a full-service, accredited medical education company devoted to enhancing the knowledge of healthcare professionals (HCPs). IMNE achieved its initial accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) in July 2005 and remains a fully accredited provider of physician continuing medical education.
As a full-service independent medical education provider, IMNE has an exemplary history of developing fair-balanced, evidence-based content that is proven to enhance the knowledge of the medical professionals we serve.
The mission of IMNE is to develop superior continuing education (CE) activities that provide practicing HCPs with the necessary information, techniques, and modalities to improve patient care and prevent disease.
These activities are developed for a wide range of individuals and/or multidisciplinary audiences (including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other HCPs) based on identified educational needs. All activities are developed independently of supporters and ensure scientific rigor, fair balance, and medical accuracy.
IMNE educational activities focus on disease states and therapeutic regimens in a variety of clinical areas ranging from primary to specialty care. Content is delivered using a wide variety of program formats—live symposia and independent regional meetings; internet-based and digital applications; podcasts; and print—in order to meet individual learning preferences of the targeted audience(s). It is expected that participating HCPs will gain new knowledge that can be applied clinically toward improving their practice and enhancing patient care. Postactivity evaluations as well as short- and long-term surveys determine the usefulness of these educational activities and also collect educational needs data.
