Acutus Medical

Mechanical Engineering R&D Intern

July - September 2018 • Carlsbad, CA

What I liked

At Acutus Medical, I was automatically treated as an employee, expected to work on independent projects and contribute to the goals of the company. Everyone is instilled with the passion to create superior outcomes for people with atrial arrhythmias and we have meetings every day to discuss this mission. I loved how my team and supervisor were willing to guide and help me along with my projects. They have mentored and helped me develop the skillsets needed to better my engineering career.

What I wish was different

The internship really did not feel like an internship. It felt like I was working as an employee of the company. I wished there were more events dedicated to enhancing the internship experience, such as a one to one lunch event between company's management to facilitate networking and mentorship for the interns.


I believe the mission is wonderful and everyone is on boat with the goal of the company. I would recommend anyone who would love an experience to work on interesting and complex medical devices to pursue an internship or career with Acutus Medical.
