Boston Scientific Corp. has announced plans to construct a new European Institute for Therapy Advancement campus in Brussels. It will help healthcare professionals advance the standard of patient care. The company expects the facility to be completed in early 2007.
The facility will offer medical education and skills training on the latest developments in the medical device field. Founded in 2000 by Guidant in Brussels, the Institute for Therapy Advancement provides medical education programs that address the real-world practical needs of healthcare professionals. It is now part of Boston Scientific's global medical education network.
Programs at the institute are designed and taught by independent physician experts. As a result, the majority of programs hosted by the Institute are CME accredited. More than 15,000 healthcare professionals have participated in the institute's programs to date.
