Clinical Development Engineering
Who we are
We are a group of patient-focused, mission-driven engineers that are responsible for providing clinical insights during the product development process.
Clinical Development Engineers are passionate about hands-on work, strive to deeply understand clinical user needs, and learn continuously about our products and clinical procedures to translate user needs into data-driven product requirements.
Influence Product Design
As Clinical Development Engineers (CDEs) we define, develop, and validate the clinical function of new products for our da Vinci Multi-port, Single-port, and Ion product lines. We’re involved in all phases of product development, from early assessment of clinical value and feasibility, definition of critical product requirements, iterative evaluation of products through design validation, and support of first patient cases. When a product enables surgeons to help patients around the world, we know that our passionate, hands-on work has played a part.
Develop Clinical Expertise
After an immersive clinical training period, CDEs apply their knowledge of robotic procedures and techniques across multiple specialties to hands-on product evaluations in in-vivo, ex-vivo, and cadaveric models. We collaborate with physicians and clinical staff to represent and champion a broad spectrum of clinical perspectives throughout the product development process.
Make Your Mark
We’re looking for passionate individuals to join our diverse team. You’ll have the opportunity to develop and shape future innovations that will support our company’s mission to advance minimally invasive care and expand the potential of physicians to heal without constraints.
