*A practical five-day course with interactive workshops - now in its 17th successful year!*
This comprehensive course has been designed to map the processes from device concept to marketing and show how regulatory, quality, clinical and other aspects of device development are joined into a continuous process.
5-9 Jul 2021
Bringing a medical device to the marketplace is a complex and lengthy procedure which requires experience, knowledge and specialist skills. The contribution to successful market placement comes from many different skilled individuals and organisations who should be aware of all the stages involved and be able to relate their responsibilities to the needs of other professionals, scientists, clinicians and regulatory and quality experts.
This comprehensive course has been designed to map the processes from device concept to marketing and show how regulatory, quality, clinical and other aspects of device development are joined into a continuous process. The programme will commence with a general introduction as to what devices are and how they are developed, and continue with lectures, practical workshops and case studies covering each process applicable to device development, marketing and, eventually, postmarket procedures. There will be ample time throughout the five days for informal discussions
with our expert faculty and fellow professionals.
