Part of a STAR Programme

The Medical Device world is fundamentally different from the Pharmaceutical environment: different products and legislations, different concepts, different strategies: all requiring a specific approach during the entire development phase of the product.

Are you a starter in Clinical Research with Medical Devices?

Are you an experienced CRA or a Junior Project Manager with limited experience in Medical Device Clinical Operations?

Or are you an investigator or study coordinator who wishes to get a better view on Device development?

In 5-day STAR program, you will find a broad variety of expertise levels from both sponsor and investigator side. This mixture will guarantee a dynamic learning environment for all participants.
