Exciting career prospects with a degree in Biomedical Engineering

Alumni report on their job as Clinical Consultants at a medical device manufacturer and explain minimally invasive heart catheter intervention.

Heart rhythm disorders are among the most common complaints. The conduction of excitation on the heart muscle is disturbed, resulting in irregular contractions that can severely affect the patient. One possible form of therapy is the minimally invasive ablation of heart tissue using catheters to interrupt the disorders. The guidance of the catheters and precise control during the procedure is technically so complex that "Clinical Consultants" from the medical device manufacturer are on site to support the medical team during the intervention.

The alumni of Biomedical Engineering (BME) Franziska Heiß and Mustafa Soyekici, who work for Biosense Webster, which is part of the large Johnson & Johnson empire, report on how exciting the job as a Clinical Consultant is. At the start of the new year, they explained the procedure and medical technology to the BME students of the 7th semester in the "Minimally Invasive Procedures" module with Prof. Remmele, and of course, they talked a lot about their job.
