5-Day Course: The Medical Device Summer School - From Concept to CE Marking (London, United Kingdom - July 1-5, 2019) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

May 3, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 3, 2019--The “The Medical Device Summer School - From Concept to CE Marking” 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. It will commence with a general introduction as to what devices are and how they are developed, and continue with lectures, workshops and case studies covering each process applicable to device development, marketing and eventually the post-market procedures. There will be ample time for informal discussions alongside the presentations and workshops.

From concept to CE marking - including an update on the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR)

Bringing a Medical Device to the market place is a complex and lengthy procedure which requires experience, knowledge and specialist skills. The contribution to a successful market placement comes from many different skilled individuals and organisations. Those contributing towards the placing of devices on the market 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.
