Lewis Center - Medical Series: Medical Device Research
The Lewis Center is hosting a medical series where we will bring medical professionals to you to talk about their (typically unusual) path to becoming an expert in their field, and then give a lecture in their topical area.
Dr. Christine Mauro graduated from ASU and Barrett with a Psychology degree and thought she wanted to be a doctor. She took a gap year and worked at tech start-ups, then went to University of Minnesota for medical school. While completing her general surgery residency, she found that she didn’t want to be a surgeon, but she wanted to stay within the medical field. She went on to obtain her MMCs from Harvard Medical School, and completed a vascular surgery postdoctoral research fellowship.
Today, Dr. Mauro is a remote-based Senior Global Medical Director for Stryker. In her role, she works on developing corporate strategy for clinical devices and oversees the medical device safety. Dr. Mauro’s focus on medical device safety covers the question of, “What if a medical device malfunctions while in a patient?” Previously she served as Medical Director, Minimally Invasive Therapies Group for Medtronic.
