MPD Introduction to Med Tech Project Management

Tuesday 27th September 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


With increasing pressures on healthcare businesses to get to market quicker, with lower development costs, managing your projects effectively has never been more important. However, regulatory expectations for medical technology development are continuously evolving. There’s a natural tension between these two aims that is further complicated by the interactions and interdependencies of the major strands of product development. Following a project management process that is focused on doing the right things, at the right times, ensures the balance is maintained, shortens your time to market and reduces development costs.

This Medilink Professional Development (MPD) Training Course has been designed in collaboration with Three Circles, to provide key staff with an understanding of the crucial steps that need to be taken to ensure successful project completion.
