CAS CARAQA Information Session

Medical devices and in-vitro medical devices perform vital tasks, not only in the challenging times we are currently facing, and many Swiss manufacturers have successfully contributed to this work over the years. European Directives governing these devices are becoming Regulations and although the change has been put back to May 2021, the time for organizations to adapt is limited.

To face this challenge and to empower you to cope with the new requirements in clinical, regulatory and quality affairs within the landscape of medical and in vitro diagnostic medical devices, a special continuing education program has been established. The University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HEIG-VD), in cooperation with Medidee®, offer a unique training opportunity: the Certificate of Advanced Studies in Clinical, Regulatory and Quality Affairs for Medical Devices and In-Vitro Diagnostics (CAS CARAQA) at the HEIG-VD Campus in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. The CAS CARAQA aims to develop professionals’ knowledge and practical experience in the medical device and in-vitro diagnostics sectors. Participants will acquire a broad range of skills enabling them to take responsibility for regulatory compliance within their organization.

Following up on the highly successful edition this year, the next CAS CARAQA course will start in September 2020. Detailed information can be obtained at the forthcoming info event, on June 24th at 17:00 at EPFL Innovation Park (Lausanne) - Room Luna - Building F – ground floor.
