Impact user outcomes.  Come for a job, stay for a career.


A Day in the Life

Medical devices can be complex and may require users to understand specific information about storage, use, disposal, or reprocessing. Although it is optimal to guide the use of devices via intuitive design to the greatest extent possible, Medtronic has to rely on instructional materials to convey important information supporting safe and effective product use. Instructions for use (IFU) are therefore considered part of the product user interface.

The design needs of instructional materials are the same as the design needs for any product. Good design incorporates an understanding of a product’s real-life use.

You can do so through a combination of techniques, such as focus groups, interviews, field research, contextual inquiries, and literature reviews.

Designing usable IFUs involves selecting appropriate textual content, layout, organization, font, font size, contrast, and use of graphics.

You can provide engineering leadership in the design and development of innovative products for Renal Care Solutions through product level evaluation, verification and validation. You can provide engineering expertise on cross-functional development project teams and collaborate with other Medtronic and external engineering groups.
