The Academic Institute for International Development of Transfusion Medicine is a collaboration between the University of Groningen, the University Medical Center, the Faculty of Economics and Business and Sanquin Blood Supply.

The IDTM Foundation’s main activity is the organization of the Management of Transfusion Medicine (MTM) programme, a unique, 2 year programme for potential leaders of blood banks in medium- to low  income countries. Through our partnerships, we strongly connect with the international professional field. We also play a pivotal role in the acquisition of sponsors for student scholarships.

In 2004, IDTM was set up as a Foundation under Dutch Law, with all collaborating organizations being represented in the board.
