Join us for an IN-PERSON conversation with a product manager at Bigfoot Biomedical, a company that has just started clinical trials for technology to help manage insulin-dependent diabetes through smart technology. Andrew will discuss the day-to-day duties of a product manager in the medical innovation field, the transition from college to industry, the importance of networking, and general career advice. Prior to joining Bigfoot, Andrew completed his MS in Engineering Management at Duke University, then worked at Medtronic for four years. He has also interned at a variety of large and small companies. Bring questions or just a listening ear!
CMTI students had a Skype conversation with Clinical Specialist, Rachel Rakvica from W.L. Gore & Associates. They learned about her experience in the CMTI MS program and how she translated that into an exciting position at Gore.
As part of our continuing "Career Conversations" series, we had another great Skype "visit" from a former student, Nicole (Telleri) Simpson, who is now working at Heartware in Framingham, MA. It’s an exciting time to be a Verification and Validation (V&V) engineer at Heartware, as they start a new clinical trial for a smaller, improved Ventricular Assist Device.
