Never-ending learning opportunities
Jorn enjoys working with his other colleagues at Materialise and also with surgeons, who he feels are very passionate about their job. He thinks it’s always great when surgeons think along with the engineers and are open to 3D planning.
The fact that every case is different can be challenging for the Clinical Engineers at Materialise, but it provides them with the opportunity to know more about the clinical features and to get technical knowledge by working with senior employees of Materialise.
“You face challenges every day, but they make you learn and grow, and this makes it easy for me to stay motivated. The job also has very strict deadlines, but being involved in the whole process, from the planning until the guide is printed, is very rewarding,” explains Jorn.
“Sometimes you can even go to surgeries and look at the results, which really makes you realize how much you are helping a patient with 3D printing. Surgeons come to us with deformations where 3D visualization and 3D printing really helps with their operations.”
