JOB SHADOWING PROGRAM
Do you think you would like to share a day with a regulatory student, showing them how you do your job?
Do you want to show a student ways to think through challenges, adapt to the new ISO rules, understand different country regulatory changes, or understand new biologics as examples.
We are actively reaching out to match the newest members of our profession at the University of Washington’s BRAMS program with host ORCA members. Spend a day together.
This is an opportunity available to current members only.
