The Biomet Learning Center, now known as the Orthopaedic Skills Academy, was founded in 1999 to offer practicing surgeons state-of-the-art educational programs. The 30,000-square-foot facility, located near Biomet headquarters in Warsaw, houses education stations and labs that supply surgeons with hands-on opportunities in image-guided surgery, surgical simulation, arthroscopy and sports medicine, to name just a few. It's also where visiting surgeons learn to master the latest equipment in Biomet's product portfolio. Lastly, the Academy's auditorium accommodates live video conferences of worldwide surgical procedures.
In September 2008, Biomet unveils a brand new surgeon training wing at the Academy. In celebration of the grand opening, Moleskine was called to create a line of notebooks debossed with the Biomet logo and wrapped in a custom paperband. The notebooks - an ideal note-taking device during lessons - are to be presented as gifts to surgeons participating in the Academy's programs.
