In today’s competitive and highly regulated healthcare environment, it is essential for companies to bring new products to the market quickly – and to keep them on the market. Excellence in managing regulatory issues is therefore a key strategic advantage to healthcare companies.
Regulatory affairs professionals play an important part in co-ordinating scientific endeavour with regulatory demands throughout the life of a product.
Cranfield’s qualification – in collaboration with The Organisation for Professionals in Regulatory Affairs (TOPRA) – combines TOPRA’s long-standing experience and expertise with Cranfield’s strong academic reputation and its links to industry. For the first time, it provides graduate professionals working in healthcare regulatory affairs with a recognised way of formalising your skills in the field, giving you an advanced theoretical understanding of the processes and practices central to medical device regulatory affairs.
Available on a part time basis only, this qualification is designed to be flexible in order to fit around your current job and responsibilities. For even greater flexibility, and for professionals with a specific interest, individual modules may be attended as standalone short courses, without the need to register for the full qualification.
