As the advancement and complexity of medical devices has been accelerated, and social needs for medical treatment that is minimally invasive on patients grow significantly, healthcare professionals are constantly required to improve their skills of manipulating medical devices.
By establishing facilities dedicated to Professional Education, Johnson & Johnson has been working on offering the environment and opportunity to obtain the skills of appropriate use of state-of-the-art medical devices to healthcare professionals for over 20 years including the introduction of the training for endoscopic surgery from an early stage.
In 1992, Medical Innovation Institute of Technology (MIT) was established in Sukagawa City, Fukushima Prefecture. In 2014, Tokyo Science Center (TSC) was established in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, and more than 10,000 healthcare professionals from variety of specialties from home and abroad visit the facility annually.
Both facilities are equipped with sophisticated medical devices, and offer practical trainings of manipulating medical devices in an environment with the accurate reproduction of operating room and screening room of hospitals. By providing trainings, we promote the appropriate use of medical devices so that patients can safely benefit the advanced medicine.
