Medical Education for Medical Proffesionals


STREMBLE focuses on research and development in medical education, with respect to ways in which Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and new media can support the teaching and learning process as well as the training of medical professionals, such as doctors, nurses, and emergency personnel.

The founding members of Stremble have extensive experience in executing large-scale pilots in medical education for the evaluation of e-learning platforms and applications, resulting in many scientific publications. Stremble’s analyses platform is specially designed to help in the set-up, execution and statistical analyses of pilot outcomes in order to clearly quantify effectiveness. Stremble’s extensive network of partners established from existing and past projects enables us to deploy targeted pilots with large numbers of participants that meet criteria for inclusion.
Moreover, Stremble is a member of mEducator Best Practice Network (BPN), which has critically evaluated existing standards in the field of e-learning and implemented a reference model in order to enable specialized state-of-the-art medical educational content to be discovered, retrieved, shared and re-used across European higher academic institutions.
