Presenter: Gina Merchant, PhD
When: Tuesday, November 10, 11-12PM Eastern Time
Details: The vast majority of careers in the Health Tech industry more closely mirror careers in the Tech industry than they do careers in digital health research in academia. This webinar introduces you to some fundamentals of the Tech Game that will help you transition from a traditional academic role to a career in industry. Dr. Merchant, PhD Public Health, MA Experimental Psychology, has worked in product development and strategy for a market-leading medical device company, a young fast-growing startup, and as a consultant for numerous health tech companies. In this session she (1) outlines common challenges most academics face as they transition; (2) describes the culture shock she experienced (and still experiences) moving from academia to industry; and, (3) highlights need-to-know health tech terminology, incentive structures, and processes that are not commonly understood in academic environments.
