In this week’s DeviceTalks Weekly podcast, Edwards Lifesciences executive Dr. Todd Brinton shares the one trait he looks for in job candidates that can trump talent and ability.
It was all part of his heartfelt and hard-won advice to professionals looking to find a home in the medtech industry. Call it a commencement address of sorts for this year’s graduates aspiring to work in the medical device industry.
Brinton’s own path to Edwards took an unusual route, starting first at medtech startups before he forced his way into medical school. After securing his MD, he landed in a job he thought he’d never have, learned to love it and then gathered the courage to walk away from it to pursue his new role at Edwards.
DeviceTalks Host Tom Salemi spoke with Brinton in March.
