Association Sponsors Regulatory Compliance Students

Posted by | Graduate School Highlights, Regulatory Compliance | No Comments

As treasurer of the Association of Medical Diagnostics Manufacturers (AMDM) for a number of years, Leif Olsen had set up a variety of funds for the growing nonprofit trade association. As a member of the Hood College Graduate School Advisory Council for 12 years and an alumnus of the school’s biomedical science master’s program, he saw an opportunity for AMDM to extend financial support to students at his alma mater.

The result of Leif connecting the dots: In 2011, AMDM established sponsorships for financially pressed students in Hood’s regulatory compliance certificate program. Six students have benefited to date.

“Many of our members are involved in the manufacture of clinical laboratory diagnostic tests and equipment that are subject to FDA compliance, so the program is an excellent match for us,” according to Mr. Olsen, citing AMDM’s role as an educational resource for regulatory submissions and other compliance information related to the in vitro diagnostic industry.

“A high quality educational program that promotes good design and manufacturing practices gives employees a significant career edge, far more so than on-the-job training,” said Mr. Olsen. “Hood offers that caliber of study.”
