The Medical Device Summit will be one of the largest gatherings of medical device companies, suppliers, professionals and experts in 2015. This year has shown that the industry continues to face a number of issues that will be affecting it in the long-term.

This event gives professionals the opportunity – whether they are new entrants in the field or middle management or veterans – to interact with the leading minds in the industry about the current state of laws and technology and government oversight and more. Professionals will get CPE RAC (Regulatory Affairs Certification) credits after attending workshop. They will also get prime networking opportunities with their industry peers from the across the US.
“The Medical Device summit is a premier gathering of regulators, industry veterans and policy influencers,” said Mark Mitchell, SVP Corporate Development MetricStream and business head for ComplianceOnline. “It is a great opportunity to share ideas, experiences and train on important compliance challenges and we are excited that attendees will gain perspective of regulatory compliance while networking and sharing best practices with colleagues. Valued peer relationships in the risk management and compliance discipline are absolutely essential, and we are helping to foster those relationships.”
“We’re thrilled to host Tom Loker as a leading inspirational keynote this year,” said Angela Bazigos, Morf Media Inc. chief compliance officer and co-chair of the Medical Device Summit 2015. “The discussions, debates, workshops and exhibitions will also throw light on the direction the industry will take in the future – making it all the more important for today’s medical device professionals to actively take part in this year’s vital event.”
