In the September edition of the scientific magazine PMFarma, you can read about our Company-funded professional training program for young scientists that wish to enter the exciting field of medical device clinical and IVD (In Vitro Diagnostic) research. This training program was established and developed by the founder of AKRN Scientific Consulting, Dr. Maria Nyakern:
“There is an increasing demand of clinical research professionals that can support the clinical evaluation of Medical Devices and IVD. Although the healthcare technology sector is facing a shortage of new talent, it is difficult for young professionals to enter this fascinating industry. We believe that we have an ideal formula: A Clinical Research Fellow Program which allows the incorporation of young talent for their growth within our company”.

This program offers rigorous and comprehensive training in all areas of clinical research, regulatory affairs, and medical device development.
