IIHS - Hear Our Story

The organiser

Since the healthcare industry evolves rapidly, it is becoming a mandatory requirement to find new approaches to face new challenges.  Hence, International Institute of Health Sciences (IIHS) initiated the BioInquirer platform to support the knowledge-hungry healthcare professionals.

The platform was established by the Academic Department of IIHS, under the guidance and supervision of Dr. Kithsiri Edirisinghe, Director Academics. One of the key activities under the BioInquirer platform is providing ethical clearance required during the research process.

International Institute of Health Sciences (IIHS) is a healthcare training institute, affiliated with universities in Australia, UK, USA, Finland and Malaysia. IIHS has been contributing locally and internationally to the healthcare industry, for the past 15 years by building healthcare professionals to address the growing healthcare needs.
