IDOR – the D’Or Institute for Research and Education – is a science, education and healthcare innovation-oriented non-profit organization. IDOR’s enthusiastic founders envisioned a state-of-the-art institution aimed at global-scale collaboration for the development of healthcare supported by cutting-edge science and technology. Achieving this vision is supported by IDOR’s action pillars – scientific research, health education and training, and assessment of new technologies and improvements in the hospital environment.
Operating since 2010, IDOR brings together a team of highly specialized researchers, practitioners and scholars. This expertise is also put to the service of the Ph.D., MBA and Undergraduate programs offered by the Institute, as well as Medical Residency and Development programs.
IDOR further undertakes an open innovation initiative – the Open D’Or, an innovation agency developed jointly with Rede D’Or São Luiz (RDSL), the largest private network of hospitals and medical centers in Brazil and the major funding sponsor of the Institute.
IDOR’s modern infrastructure and stimulating environment also comprise state-of-the-art laboratories where research is carried out in multidisciplinary teams, hence integrating education and clinical practice. This innovative model provides students with the opportunity to bridge learning to practice while ensuring that researchers are able to transfer laboratory-generated knowledge to actual clinical care.
