Who We Are
Our Mission: IVUmed is committed to making quality urological care available to people worldwide. In fulfilling this mission, IVUmed provides medical and surgical education to physicians and nurses and treatment to thousands of children and adults.
Teach One, Reach Many. IVUmed’s motto reflects the impact that each of our volunteers and donors has on the world. We provide world-class medical and surgical training to physicians and nurses in low-resource areas of the world. In doing so, we help address a major cause of extreme poverty—lack of access to quality healthcare.
Each person we train has the potential to reach hundreds, even thousands, of children and adults in need. That is the power of your support. Together, we build something that continues beyond the bounds of each individual’s efforts.
Every patient we reach gains the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life. And by striving to build sustainable surgical teaching programs, your impact is magnified exponentially.
We teach individual providers. We serve individual patients. With your help, we build a global network that reaches thousands of providers and patients. In the end, no one will be denied access to the expert care that we often take for granted.
