On February 23 at 12pm, Richard Korn will be guest speaking in the Irvine Auditorium as a part of The Monterey Institute’s Spring Lecture Series. Mr. Korn will also be a member of the Career Fair panel. His lecture is titled, “Medical Device Localization: The Day in the Life of a Localization Manager”.
The world of a localization manager at a medical device company is exciting and diverse. Products that diagnose or treat life threatening conditions require heightened quality and a focus on procedures and regulations. The growth of international markets for medical devices in recent years emphasizes the importance of exploring creative localization and testing techniques. Regulatory, marketing, technical and quality goals all play a part in the day of a localization manager.
The juggling act continues as the regulations shift, at times, on a weekly or daily basis. Please join Richard Korn as he discusses the unique nature of medical device localization and how he formed a localization unit at St. Jude Medical from the ground up.
