Professional Education

Johnson and Johnson Medical Devices and DePuy Synthes Companies share a common vision.

  • Provide the technologies and surgical training needed to improve the lives of patients all around the world.

  • The best patient outcomes are achieved when surgeons have the right products along with the knowledge to use them safely and effectively.

That’s why we’ve developed extensive professional education programs which have made us one of the leaders in surgeon training.

Our 2018 calendar includes:

  • 3 CORAIL PINNACLE Learning Centres

Hip Visitation Centers


Visitation Centres (VCs) are an established part of the DePuy Synthes Professional Education Pathway for Healthcare Professionals (HCPs).

  • They provide the respective HCP with an opportunity to visit a recognised Key Opinion Leader (KOL) at their practice/centre of excellence in small groups of 2 – 4 HCPs.

  • The objective of each VC is to enable the visiting HCP to have a better understanding of a specific technique/procedure that may have previously been introduced at a DePuy Synthes course.

European Surgical Institute

The J&J Institute in Hamburg will foster an environment of lifelong learning for generations of global clinical and administrative health care professionals throughout every stage of their careers. Thus we partner with medical professionals and specialty societies across the spectrum of surgical and medical areas to deliver excellence in professional education.
