2017 Alumni of the CMTI program, Kyle Myers, was recently hired by Welch Allyn/Hill Rom in Skaneateles, NY as a Manufacturing Engineer. Kyle was an integral member of the Cardiovascular group in 2017 that worked on a customized retraction device used in heart surgery. We wish Kyle well in his new endeavors at Welch Allyn! Here are a few comments from Kyle following his first month on the job!
“Its neat how having an understanding of the FDA CFRs gave me a respect for all of the policies and procedures they outline.”
“My current projects have been performing Job Safety Assessments for several of the production lines. Its just like any risk analysis activity we’ve done in classes, looking at each tool and motion required in the assembly and assessing the risks and what controls are in place to minimize risk.”
“I recently read this white paper from an R&D consulting firm in Boston called Sagentia. There’s not a lot of information but I thought the “five steps to effective surgical design” was a good overview of everything we touched on (in the CMTI).”
