I work with phenomenal minds. I’m working in a really interesting field that’s just progressing constantly. The technology’s changing, the clinical outcomes are improving. Every day you see something new and different- that’s what inspires me.

My name is Clare Bodimeade, I work for Stryker a medical devices company. I take care of arthroplasty for large joints so hip and knee replacements
[Sequence of shots- joint replacements, Clare discussing work
We’re part of an aging population, everyone knows someone that’s had either a hip or knee replacement. These surgeries are becoming more and more common place, and being part of the team to improve patient outcomes and to make healthcare better is really rewarding.

The biggest proportion of my time is spent in hospitals within the theatre setting. Another aspect of my role is education. Education around helping the nursing staff learn the new instruments and the procedure, it can also be helping to teach junior orthopaedic registrars and coordinating training for orthopods too.

At UTS I learned to analyse things, think critically and question the information before me. It was because of the teachers that I had that I was able to explore all of these things, and it’s something that I’m able to use in my current role and enhances my experience every day.
