Dennis about working at Qserve:
“From the first interview on, I experienced the dynamic, diverse, and honest environment within Qserve. I am eager to apply the acquired knowledge, learned during my studies and prior jobs at medical device companies, on daily basis at Qserve. Yet, I am also excited to immerse myself in the consultancy work’s new tasks and challenges to expand my regulatory and quality knowledge further.”
Dennis had the opportunity to gain some regulatory affairs experience at various medical device companies next to his studies. His responsibilities varied from labeling-related projects, updating internal databases, and maintaining technical files to reviewing marketing materials. He learned how companies work with quality management systems ensuring that the processes are implemented.
Dennis obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Design Engineering in 2016 and a Double Master of Science degree in Integrated Product Design (Medisign track) & Biomedical Engineering (Biomaterials & Biomechanics track) at the TU Delft in 2021.
