The audience spanned recent graduates, individuals interested in switching careers, and those trying to work out where they could see their future lying.
The main takeaway from the day was the passion behind why we all work in this field – patient safety. It was highlighted through virtually all of the talks that this is the main reason that we do what we do.
Ashleigh’s talk centred around the rewards and challenges associated with regulatory affairs, including the high-stake decisions, the ability to continue learning, and the adaptability that comes with constant flux. It was highlighted that there is currently a global shortage of regulatory professionals and that experience in the IVD field appears to be at a premium.
This is just one example of how BIVDA is contributing to social value, and we hope that it will inspire more people to step into the world of regulatory affairs.
