Career Tips for QA/RA Professionals in the Medical Device Industry

Medical device quality and regulatory professionals face changes, challenges, requirements, standards, and so much more. It’s a challenge for them to keep up. In this episode, Mitch Robbins, founder and managing director of The Anthony Michael Group, offers tips for Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs (QA/RA) professionals on how to prepare for such a career. Some of the highlights of the show include: ● The Anthony Michael Group is executive search firm that focuses on the medical device industry and places regulatory and quality leadership talent. ● Common quality and regulatory themes impacting the medical device industry include expediting time to market and keeping up with post-market changes. ● Regulatory and quality professionals help companies overcome obstacles to get things done and accomplish product development goals. ● Mindsets and Skill Sets: Differentiate low and high performers by understanding how their function and responsibilities fit with other pieces of the business. ● Market changes and expectations have evolved from must-have to integrated and cross-functional approach with increased respect. ● In the future, Mitch expects the “gig” economy to continue to grow with a contingent and consultant workforce. ● Build employee value proposition (EVP), candidate value proposition (CDP), and your brand and portfolio of expertise, recognition, and outcomes. ● Network, get certified, be resourceful, and add value by taking risks, volunteering for projects, and putting yourself in uncomfortable situations.
