Qserve Medical Device CRO and consultancy offers you a hands-on GCP course that supports your everyday clinical operations and quality issues. Our course is set up especially for professionals in the medical device industry that work on clinical trials, PMCF studies and investigator initiate trials (IIT), on a regular basis. 

During this 2-day course, the content of the ISO-14155 GCP standard for medical devices will be our guide. During the interactive sessions, we will discuss the practical implementation of the standard. The theory will be supported by real live examples of difficulties and mistakes on the one hand, but also practical and clever solutions that avoid unnecessary bureaucratic burdens on the other hand. At the end of the day, you will go home with knowledge, GCP skills and practical ideas to implement directly within your organization, and you will receive your personal GCP certificate. 

NEW! We will also take the opportunity to inform you and discuss the key changes in the new 2020 version of the standard. 

 this training can also be provided in-house for other organizations in the supply chain involved in one or more stages of the life-cycle of a medical device, including design and development, production, storage and distribution, installation, servicing or provision of associated activities. The contents will be adapted to the specific role(s) of that organization.

  • To understand the content and role of the ISO-14155 standard in clinical investigation 
  • To be able to implement the standard in a practical way during the preparation, execution and evaluation of clinical studies with medical devices
