Event details:  

Medical trainees are driven, industrious and ambitious people, and it takes many years of dedication to become a qualified clinician or resaearcher. While the training is focused, there are actually many career options avaialble for such talented folks.  At the same time, it can be challenging to imagine any career direction that might lead away from research or direct patient care; after such an investment in training, the idea of venturing into new and unfamiliar arenas can be daunting.  But good news!  Many medical professionals are putting their advanced training to essential use, and building satisfying careers in ways they had not initially imagined.  For example, the safety and efficacy of medical devices used for diagnostics and treatment is of paramount importance within the healthcare system, and lives are saved and clinical outcomes improved by those who apply their training to such challenges.  In this lecture we will focus on:

  • Breadth of the medical devices industry from perspective of one of the largest medical companies in the world - Philips - and from a perspective of more than 150 physicians working for the company,
  • The medical device realization process; how medical knowledge is crucial in delivering safe and efficient devices to your colleagues in clinical settings,
  • Balancing passion for medicine and drive to help patients with corporate interests, managing potential ethical conflicts and commercial pressures,
  • What can you do to become a desired resource for a company?
