Our final site visit of the trip was a short bus ride away to Johnson and Johnson Medical S.p.A.
J&J had a nice breakfast followed by a well-prepared presentation. We heard about J&J in the world, as well as the Medical SpA Italy component. After a short break, we also heard from some partner companies of J&J, including: ETHICON Energy, ASP, DePuy Synthes Codman Neuro, and Biosense Webster. It was a day packed with information, and an all-around good final site visit.
Later in the evening, the group went out to a final dinner together. We went to a nice Italian place for dinner (when in Rome…).
The academic portion of the trip is officially over, and Friday was a day entirely free to enjoy Rome (or to cram all of your assignments in if you procrastinated). Professor Fusting and I visited the Vatican and a few other sites. The students went all-over-the-place.
Early morning tomorrow, most of us head back to the U.S. This has been a fantastic trip, and we are all sad it is coming to an end.
This will be my last blog post of the trip. I would like to thank everyone who was been following along. Hope to see you next year!
