Stryker is one of the world’s leading medical technology companies and, together with their customers, is driven to make healthcare better. They offer innovative products and services in Orthopaedics, Medical and Surgical, and Neurotechnology and Spine that help improve patient and hospital outcomes.

Stryker will be hosting their first round of co-op students in the fall of 2018. They hope to utilize the talent of Drexel students in building technological capabilities that enhance patient care.

Also, Stryker believes in helping their people discover their strengths and passions, and offers development opportunities unique to each employees’ needs, which could include training, certifications, tuition reimbursement, challenging assignments, mentorship, leadership programs, exposure and visibility to other functions or divisions within Stryker, and one-on-one coaching.
Healthcare and technology is constantly changing at a very rapid pace. Stryker aims to be ahead of these challenges by pursuing innovative ideas and technologies to treat patients and help address their customers’ needs.
