The Regulatory Professional: A Jack of All Trades

Posted 01 September 2008 | By

The regulatory profession has witnessed significant changes in recent years. A combination of factors within the healthcare products industry has elevated the role and the impact of regulatory professionals within the traditional pharmaceutical and biotechnology organization. It is not uncommon for senior regulatory leadership to report directly to the CEO. As the regulatory role has expanded, senior management's expectations for individuals in this role have grown to include broader knowledge and deeper global experiences. As a result, seasoned regulatory experts are in demand.
