Hear from previous workshop attendees:

Edgar Calixtro Circle Title


"The PMA Submissions Workshop is essential for anyone who is new to regulatory affairs. You will walk away with a greater understanding of how to prepare for a PMA submission. The speakers were very knowledgeable and the AdvaMed staff provided the best possible learning experience. Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend it to anyone in the medical device industry that works in regulatory."

"It was incredibly beneficial as a recent graduate to have had the opportunity to sit down with highly experienced professionals in the medical device field and focus on the topic of 510(k) submissions.  I'm now able to come back to my company with significant knowledge I didn't have before and get a jump start in applying it, rather than taking the time to figure out the process along the way. All in all, I came into the workshop knowing very few details about 510(k)s and left feeling like I could start on a submission."
