Thank you to Abbott Laboratories for guiding us on a tour of the company. We hope all the attendees enjoyed getting to know what Abbott does, their history, and getting a view of their facilities and manufacturing line. Be sure to keep an eye out for updates on our next company tour next quarter!
On February 8, several BMES members were invited to tour Applied Medical, a leading medical device company. During the time spent at the facility, they were granted a tour of the laboratories and multiple product demonstrations. Our members were allowed a first look at the company's new and developing products. Following the tour, members were allowed a hands-on experience.
“The Applied Medical tour was a wonderful experience and really opened my eyes to the large scale in which medical device companies, like Applied Medical, cater to the world. Being just a student, it is easy to forget how important decisions made today impact those of tomorrow. Applied Medical was an extremely impressive company, and I hope to return one day” - Jaya Vengadesan, Professional Development Chair.
