The Fort Myers, Fla.-based Institute for Mobility and Longevity is joining a partnership that would create 11 orthopedic Centers of Excellence in the U.S. and India.
The Institute for Mobility and Longevity will conduct educational seminars for medical engineers under the partnership, according to a March 29 news release. Short-term traveling fellowships between the U.S. and India aim to give direct experience at surgical centers using new learning and training tools.
The IML's work in India will be part of a recently-established partnership between a Florida orthopedic group and a health system in India. Earlier in March, a partnership between Fort Myers-based Gardner Orthopedics and Shalby Advanced Technologies, a division of Shalby Hospitals in Ahmedabad, India, was announced. The collaboration will form 11 Centers of Excellence at 11 multispecialty hospitals.
