As pandemic restrictions in the U.S. ease, the Johnson & Johnson Institute welcomed back orthopaedic sports medicine and shoulder fellows to in-person learning designed to improve their knowledge and skills in soft tissue repair and shoulder reconstruction with particular emphasis on the safe and effective use of Company products. The courses, which took place in Atlanta, Chicago, San Diego, and Massachusetts, featured case-based learning and hands-on experience with procedural solutions from DePuy Synthes.
As the pace of innovation in orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine continues to accelerate, it is increasingly important to expose fellows to new techniques and technology. The courses provided this kind of education and training through faculty led reviews of real patient cases involving knee and shoulder arthroscopy and shoulder arthroplasty procedures. The fellows were then able to practice their surgical skills in cadaveric labs under the guidance of the expert faculty.
“The pandemic restricted access to hands-on learning, so we wanted to make sure we delivered an interactive experience focused on enhancing practical surgical skills and knowledge with focus including appropriate use of Company products for these fellows preparing to enter practice,” said Jocelyn Causillas, Manager for U.S. Sports Medicine & Shoulder Education. “It was great to be back in a lab-setting with faculty sharing their insights and experience and seeing first-hand the excitement fellows have for learning that can help advance patient care.”
