Chinese innovation centre to assist local medics

Boston Scientific has opened the China branch of the Boston Scientific Institute for Advancing Science (IAS) as well as its new Innovation Centre in the country. Through these state-of-the-art facilities Boston Scientific expects to foster local talent while sustainably developing innovative technologies uniquely suited to the China market.

"'Advancing science for life' is at our core, and the facilities we are dedicating today demonstrate our commitment to innovation in professional education and dedication to saving and improving the health of Chinese patients through innovative technologies," said Michael Mahoney, president and chief executive officer, Boston Scientific  "China is key to our ongoing global expansion, and we believe that initiatives such as the IAS and Innovation centre will help us to continue adapting to the unique demands of the China market."

The IAS offers Chinese medical practitioners training in clinical practice and multidisciplinary programs in Interventional Cardiology, Cardiac Rhythm Management and Electrophysiology, Endoscopy, Peripheral Interventions and Urology and Women's Health. These programs are intended to raise medical professionals' awareness of the latest industry trends as well as their knowledge of innovative technologies.

All existing professional education programs or platforms in the market such as Horizon Academy and the company's E-Club project will be integrated into the IAS.  As the heart of Boston Scientific's professional education programs in China, it is anticipated that the IAS in Shanghai will offer training courses for more than 700 professionals every year. IAS is also expected to cooperate with top medical universities and colleges in China to launch clinical courses for students, contributing to the development of China's medical industry.

In addition to serving Chinese practitioners the IAS in Shanghai is intended to support other professional education opportunities across the Asia-Pacific region.

"The IAS will offer various academic programs such as medical conferences, visiting experts' lectures, symposia on complex lesions, diagnostic and therapeutic technology classes, on-site operation training, and international exchange, as well as training programs that will reach numerous provincial-level hospitals throughout the country," said Warren Wang, vice president and managing director-China, Boston Scientific.  "Through the newly-opened institute, our global resource network and innovative technologies, we are confident that Boston Scientific can play a significant role in helping produce exceptional, highly-skilled medical professionals in cutting-edge disciplines to serve China."

The Boston Scientific Innovation centre in China is designed to drive understanding of innovative technologies and advanced medical technology products.  The centre is fully equipped with the latest multimedia devices, demonstrating the company's cutting-edge research in disease treatment practices. The Innovation centre will also collect customer feedback to aid in the development of products and technologies customized for China, in collaboration with the Boston Scientific global R&D team.
