Irish medical e-learning company Iheed to create 44 new jobs

12 Apr 2022

Iheed has already grown its headcount from 19 to 44 over the past year and is eyeing further expansion as it opens a new office in Sandyford.

Dublin-based online medical education provider Iheed plans to create 44 new jobs over the next year.

The roles will be in technology, UX design, content development, digital marketing, sales, student support, finance and operations. All of the new jobs will be based in Ireland.

Founded in 2013, Iheed provides online medical education to learners in the Middle East, Europe and Asia. It has staff in the United Arab Emirates, Hungary, India and Brazil, as well as in Dublin.

Iheed has experienced rapid expansion in the past few months, with staff numbers increasing from 19 to 44 in a one-year period. The company’s latest jobs announcement was revealed today (12 April) at the official opening of its new premises in Sandyford, Dublin.

Speaking at the opening of the new office, Iheed CEO Dr Tom O’Callaghan said that the company’s “flexible and remote model” as well as its partnerships with leading universities have positioned it well to support the ongoing challenges faced by the healthcare sector.

“These include the growing worldwide shortage of healthcare workers and the need to retain talent; a focus on value for money among policymakers; and the need for an urgent shift from expensive hospital-based care to cost-effective, community-based preventative healthcare,” O’Callaghan said.

Iheed’s partners include the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, the Irish College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland, University College Dublin and the University of Warwick in the UK.

The company works with these partners to develop and deliver online medical education remotely. More than 400,000 healthcare professionals have completed Iheed’s courses in more than 65 countries.

The company’s growing portfolio of 12 university professional qualifications include master’s degree courses in public health, medical education, healthcare leadership and diabetes. It also delivers professional diploma courses in paediatrics, women’s health and dermatology. Iheed will soon launch a suite of further specialist nursing programmes with its university partners.
