Five Day Online Medical Device Course with Focus on Concept to CE Marking, July 5th-9th, 2021

·5-min read

Dublin, June 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Medical Device Summer School - From Concept to CE Marking Training Course" conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

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.

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.

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.

Benefits of attending:

Understand the procedures for taking a medical device to the marketplace

  • Learn what regulations control the manufacture and marketing of devices in the EU

  • Ensure compliance with the MDR

  • Gain an insight into different aspects of the process for obtaining the CE mark for a device

  • Discover a holistic approach to device development and marketing

  • Participate in workshops and learn from other people's experiences

  • Understand how other professionals affect the process for bringing a device to market

  • Network with participants from organisations similar to your own

Who Should Attend:

This event has been designed primarily for those who wish to understand the processes involved in bringing a medical device to market. General medical devices as well as active implantable, in-vitro diagnostic and drug device products will be covered in the programme.
