The International Doctors Network is an initiative that arose from The Learning Enrichment Foundation’s self-study group of international medical graduates.

In 2008, seven doctors began meeting at LEF to improve their English-language skills and study for Canadian medical exams.

The network was created in response to the need to formalize the work of this study group and to provide more specialized support to its members. Since 2010 IDN is part of the Professional Immigrant Networks (PINs), an initiative from Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC).
