Islamic Medical Association of North America (IMANA) mandated the formation of IIIM at an extra ordinary Council meeting of its Executive in Orlando Florida, in 1992. The IIIM was established for the purpose of reviving and re-recording the history and traditions of Islamic Medicine. For this purpose it hopes to become a collection house for all knowledge: past, present and future related to the History and Practice of Islamic Medicine.

The IIIM's vision is to educate all physicians and especially Muslim Physicians in the rich history and traditions of Islamic Medicine. By learning from history IIIM wishes to set standards in practice of medicine that will eliminate medicine as a commodity available for sale and barter, only to the one that can afford to pay the often inflated price.

The IIIM wants to restore Medicine to its former glory as a humanitarian science, for promotion and maintenance of health, curing of the sick and prevention of pain and suffering, without regard to colour, caste, creed, or ethnicity of an individual or one's status in a society.

The purpose, for which IIIM was formed, was to collect, collate, catalogue, annotate, research and disseminate information about the History of Islamic Medicine (HIM). Islamic Medicine was the Medicine that developed and was practiced during the Islamic period of Civilization.

IIIM was also to research and publicize the multitudinous contributions that Islamic Medicine made to the development of Modern Medicine.
