RAPS Members on the Value of Regulatory Convergence
Posted 14 July 2016 | By
RAPS’ Regulatory Convergence is the world’s largest annual gathering for the healthcare product regulatory profession, and this year will be held 17–20 September in San Jose, CA. Speakers and attendees come from all over the world to learn, network and exchange ideas.
We recently asked a number of RAPS members at various stages of their regulatory careers about the value of attending the Convergence, and here’s what they had to say:
“Regulatory Convergence is a way to understand the depth and breadth of the industry and understand what’s available to you as a resource,” said Anjali Atal-Gupta of Stryker Neurovascular. “It’s a very strong professional development opportunity.”
“The 2016 meeting especially will focus on innovation and technology,” said Kiran Gulati, program chair for the Regulatory Affairs and Medical Device Certificate Programs at UCSC Extension Silicon Valley. “Being in the heart of Silicon Valley, you will be able to learn about the regulatory challenges related to being on the cutting edge of technology. Attending Regulatory Convergence will give you the chance to meet and exchange ideas with industry leaders from large companies and start-ups—people will be here from all different facets of the industry.”
