In keeping with their strong tradition in the development and enhancement of surgeon education and training, DePuy recently unveiled its most impressive development in the area yet – the DePuy Institute, LLC. Located at DePuy’s worldwide headquarters in Raynham, Massachusetts, USA, the new facility will provide education, training and research on non-surgical early interventions to complex surgery in the areas of orthopaedics, spinal care, sports medicine, soft tissue repair, trauma and neurosciences - and is one of the largest facilities of its kind anywhere in the world. The goal of the DePuy Institute is to help healthcare professionals enhance their skills and gain new insights on filling unmet clinical needs across a range of conditions – ultimately improving patient care.
“Education, training and research are the cornerstones of success both inside and outside the operating room and are essential to the advancement of care and the improvement of patient outcomes,” said Mike Mahoney, Worldwide Company Group Chairman, DePuy. “The DePuy Institute reflects our ongoing commitment to education throughout the continuum of orthopaedic and neurological care and creates an environment and sense of community conducive to learning, connecting and sharing knowledge across disciplines.”
The DePuy Institute will offer year-round educational programs on the latest concepts, techniques and technologies in the areas of minimally invasive surgery, aging spine, deformity, neurological disease, joint replacement and trauma care featuring faculty from leading teaching institutions and academic centers in the Boston area and throughout the world. It will also encourage collaboration between specialties to develop innovative solutions that improve patient care.
“Each surgeon, resident, fellow, hospital administrator, nurse or other healthcare professional who visits the DePuy Institute will engage in a personalised learning experience based on his or her individual skill set, background and interests,” said Diana Bacci-Walsh, Worldwide Vice President of Professional Education, DePuy. “They will also make new connections with their peers and colleagues that we hope will last a lifetime.”
