The D’Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR) is a non-profit organization born from the enthusiasm of its founders, who envisioned the creation of a state-of-the-art institution, aligned with the latest technologies and aimed at global development in the health sector. Active since 2010, IDOR brings together a team of specialist researchers and educators equally qualified for teaching in the health sphere, expertise that is shared through doctorate, postgraduate, undergraduate, and other courses. IDOR also has an initiative on open innovation, the Open D’Or Healthcare Innovation Hub, a platform for joint action with the Digital Transformation sector of Rede D’Or São Luiz (RDSL), that is the largest private company of hospitals in Brazil and the institute’s main maintainer.


IDOR was born from the desire to build solid scientific knowledge in the health and medical field. Since its inception, it has been working on different topics, with a multidisciplinary team of researchers and partnerships with major institutions in Brazil and around the world. As a result, our team has published hundreds of articles in international scientific journals.

A place that develops knowledge needs to share it. With this motto in mind, IDOR has set up a medical science college to offer courses at different levels, including doctoral, postgraduate, extension, improvement, and residency programs.



Opened in September 2018 by the D’Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR), the Open D’Or Healthcare Innovation Hub works as an open entrepreneurship and innovation platform. Headquartered in IDOR and working together with the Digital Transformation Sector of Rede D’Or São Luiz (RDSL), Open D’Or is responsible for integrating innovative startups with RDSL businesses.
